Hi hayley, I too had a band fitted about 3 years ago, mine worked perfectly to begin with and I lost 7 stone. I then became pregnant and due to that my band slipped. I went to st Richards for a reposition only to have my stomach punctured during surgery which wasn’t discovered until 3 months later when I too was vomiting after everything. I had the band removed and they discovered it had become fused to my stomach and my whole abdomen was filled with infection, ended up spending 2 weeks in hospital nil by mouth with drains in my stomach to drain the infection. I vowed never to go through surgery again. BUT I actually had a bypass 2 weeks ago. I managed to get funding within 2 weeks of applying. Had to wait 9 months to have op though as they wanted my scar tissues to mature before operating. It is a huge huge thing to go through after a bad experience but I had to for my health and happiness and touch wood I have come through this op with no complications. You say you live in Kent, me too, where about? Good luck with your preop diet and the op itself and keep us posted x x
