Hi all, I'm not sure if there is a thread already asking this as I am new here, but I'd like to get some opinions on what has worked best for people, band or sleeve. I had my first appointment today and my surgeon was pretty much leaning toward the sleeve. He said that he has only done 2 bands this year as the sleeve is becoming the more popular option. He also said that he is removing a lot of bands. I have been thinking about WLS for a number of years now and I have always had my heart set on the band. However, from what I have read in the past 6 months the sleeve is becoming the better option? I am currently 113kg and 45kg overweight. I'm just really confused about which option is best so I'd like to see what has worked for others. Thanks in advance. Zara
Hey all - long time no post!! Just a question, I got the lap band almost 12months ago now - woot woot!! And i've noticed within the last six months my immunity for things has gone down - things that usually wouldn't bother me are now becoming annoying issues... Eg: got my eye brows waxed about a month ago (have been getting them done since i was a teen with no problems) I ended up getting a painful abscess, had to go to the docs to get it drained etc etc, Or getting ingrown hairs alot that get infected frequently... Or just the other day i got ring worm, but no one else in the house has it... About 4months ago i got fulll bloods done, and everything was in 'normal' range... I don't know if i'm just being paranoid, or if it may have something to do with me eating less or something??? >>>>admittedly i don't take a multi >>>which i'm assuming may be the issue here, but again - all my tests came back normal... Would love any feedback!! Hope you all had awesome xmas's and new-years!
