    Default Surgery today- BAND 2 Sleeve Failure

    Well the good news is, I got my band out. The band news is, he was not about to do the sleeve.

    The band had encapsulated itself all around and formed a lot of scar tissue. So now I am in siting it out for 4 to 6 months.

    A little sad, but thankful I have a doc who made the best decision for me!

    Best wishes, I'm sure it's better than taking a chance and regretting it!
