I had a lap band done in October of 2007. 18 months later, it slipped and had to be removed. True to what doctors say, ALL my weight (plus some) has come back. I have tried and tried to diet and exercise the weight back off and NOTHING is working. So, I have decided to have WLS again. I had a wonderful experience with losing weight with the band, I LOVED the band and what it did for me and would be more than happy to pay to have another one placed. However, I keep being told that it will slip again and I should have the sleeve. I am not against the sleeve but it does freak me out. I have looked EVERYWHERE on the internet, youtube, talked to many bariatric doctors and can't get a clear answer on if this is true. Does ANYONE here have ANY experience with this happening and what was the outcome? I really need an answer as I am just about 8 weeks away from having surgery. Of course I am going to discuss this with my surgeon but really am curious if this is a danger of being re-banded.
