I am keen to share experiences of people who have actually gained weight or have had problems after lap band surgery. About 40% of people who have lap bands never lose any weight and some even gain weight. As time progresses, these people require further surgery to maintain their original weight loss goals. These options include laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
Overseas, the lap band seems to be losing popularity and other forms of weight loss surgery seem to be increasing in prevalence.
Has anyone had these problems?
