    I'm sorry I am just now reading this. I haven't been on here in a very long time. Kinsley, Kansas? We may know some of the same people. I actually went to St Nichols there MANY years ago for a short time.

    I am just over 2 months shy of having my VSG 6 years ago. I personally haven't had complications at all. I still have a very restrictive stomach. It's tough at times because yes I do wish I could eat more a lot of the time but I cannot by any means. I have maintained between 105 and 117 for over 5 years. I had hit goal at like 8 months in.

    Well, if you had the surgery I hope it was a success for you as it has been for me.

    Hello! I am scheduled for surgery with Dr. Almanza in 10/12. I know that pre-op jitters are normal, but it makes me feel better when I see others returning home with a successful procedure. Good luck this week and I will be following your post-op very carefully!

Follow-up appointments after surgery.

by Jimshoes on 08-17-2017 at 04:19 PM
Once my surgery is over and I have went back home to rural Kansas, will I be expected to fly back to San Diego for a follow-up appointment, or can it be done by telehealth...or even a local provider? What do most people do after a Lap-Band to Sleeve revision surgery?

Just a few questions for those "lap-band to sleeve" revision patients.

Hi, I am scheduled for surgery on Sept 29. I've had a Lap Band for 10 years and 12 days, and most of that time was positive. I had problems with PBing at nearly every meal, and vomiting almost daily, but the results were solid for awhile. I lost quite a bit of weight and got healthier fast. I was off the CPAP machine in about 5 weeks, which was a huge goal of mine! I went from 295 down to 210 (I would fluctuate maybe 5 pounds either side of that for years) and stayed there until fairly recently.
