Any success Band to sleevers?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Most people are telling me that band to sleeve is not going to work?? 

There must be hope that there are people out there that are successful in this option, or why world the surgeon do the op if it has a low success rate? 

Would love to hear everyone’s opinions on why it didn’t work for them if you are in the group who find it not working or if it worked what your stats are. 

Many Thanks.

Hi There,

i converted lap to sleeve in 2017 - I almost died from complications - it’s a long story and can be found if you search the site.

typically revision surgery isn’t as successful as the body knows the drill - I went from 140kg to 75kg (with the band) and my revision weight being 112kg and I’m now 65kg (170cm tall) 

would I do it again knowing the shit storm that followed (probably yes) would I have been as successful if not for complications (8 months nil orally with a nasal gastric tube for feeding) highly likely not.

in the end it comes down to you and your desire to achieve your goal.

good luck x

I had 2 lap bands and eventually a sleeve which did not work well.  This was about 5 years ago.  I. still have a total struggle losing weight, however little I eat, feel constantly hollow and emtpy, but when I eat immediately start sweating, need to lie down, feel sleepy, have palpitations and feel very unwell and uncomfortable.  These are all the classic dumping syndrome symptoms which I was led to believes does not occur with the sleeve.  I don’t know where to go from here.  Socialising is a nightmare and I feel so sad that all this is irreparable.
