Hi Rosie
I can sympathise with you I had a gastric sleeve done around 2.5 years ago I started to loose weight I was at my peak 26.5 stone but then I felt no restriction so then end of June last year aftee only managing to loose 2 stone I had a band fitted around the sleeve.
In march of this year I had a de fill for a long haul flight but then since then after trying to refill the band there is a leak some where, I had a barium swallow but that could not locate where the leak was coming from.
So now just starting the milk diet for the 3rd time yuck to have it investigated to see if it’s the port or if the whole band needs replacing, the nurse who does the fills always seemed to have problems filling it but the surgeon had no problem, it could be a case of it may have been damaged where they have tried and missed so many times.
So fingers crossed for the 3rd Oct when I do it all again. I hope you soon get sorted to.
