BHgirl14 posted a topic in Gastric SleeveHi Sleevers, I'm looking for surgeon recommendations in the Bathurst or Central Coast area who have performed band to sleeve or bypass please? My story: I've been banded not quite a year and I'm adamant that I want to have my band out and become a sleever (or very unlikely get a bypass). For lots of different reason including: *My port is now getting in the way of my day to day life, painful under clothes and limiting exercises. I figure if I have to go under anesthetic again I want it to be for the sleeve *I'm worried about the future of my band and am realistic that it will have to come out so the sooner the better now that I know wls is what I want. I want to work overseas so the follow up of the band isn't convenient *All the issues to do with food, stuck moments and regurgitation, enough said! *I also want to have a tummy tuck but I'm not doing that with a band in! The only problem is that my surgeon is not willing to do a revision as I've been 'too successful'. Even though I don't think the way I've done it has been healthy. I live 1200km away and spoke with him this week on the phone so I'm going to see him before Christmas and attempt to convince him.... Thanks
