So, my friend who got banded 2yrs ago this coming May has to go back in and get her band removed because it has eroded. Have any of you heard of this before? It's really scary to me because I just got my band.

Erosion is a complication where the band abrades the stomach and may eventually work through the stomach wall, even to the point of being visible from the inside of the stomach. It requires removal of the band.

I found this website that talks about slippage and erosion, their causes and symptoms. you might want to check it out.
