Hi Sally,

There have been people on here who had a band removal and subsequently had a bypass as they gained weight, but I am not sure they are still around, so yes it does happen, unfortunately, and I can’t answer whether you do the milk diet pre-removal or whether it might hurt, they are questions to ask your surgeon. I think that you will know more when you find out whether the band has moved, as that will determine how the team carry out the operation, as I think a straight forward band removal from the normal position is intended to be problem-free, so I guess it is a case of wait and see at the moment.

All I can say, apart from very well done on your weight loss, is that I am so sorry to hear you are vomiting and having problems, and I hope this is sorted quickly for you, and as you say, you have learnt a new way of eating now, so do your best to keep that and exercise up afterwards, and you will be fine. xx
