Lap band long term effects

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the long term effects are with the lapband? I am interested in it but some people said it can rub after a long time and cause problems. I don't know if that is a good description but anyway, I was told to do a RNY instead? I appreciate any thoughts! I guess I am just scared because I am scheduled for lap band in 2 weeks.

I think they have only been doing the band in the US for the past 3 years. And Just recently they started doing more frequent bands. In other countries for 10 years. I don't think there are "LONG term" effects information yet. I expect to hear more of that information within the next 5-10 years.
