catfanlover Posted April 27, 2005 Report Share Posted April 27, 2005 Is there anyone out there that has been rebanded after having band erosion? I had surgery in Oct. of 2003, and had to have my band removed in Dec. of 2004. My doctor said my band had probably eroded within six month after getting it on. I am now struggling with the idea of being rebanded, one the price because I feel very let down due to what happened the first time, and two I don't know if it will happen again, I had a horrible experience having it removed. I ended up in the hospital for nine days with a horrible infection, came home and went back to hospital three days later. Dr. Ortiz did not do my original banding, and I don't know that the surgical method was a contributor to my erosion or not, I talked to INAMED and they can't tell me either. I had it removed in the states by a wonderful doctor, but I know he will charge a lot more to put one back on than what I will find in Mexico. Tell me what your thoughts are on getting rebanded if you or anyone you know of have experienced it. Thank you Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
