lap-band x-ray

Recommended Posts

Hi Mona-Camille,

I saw in your response to the alphabet game that you responded "xray your band periodically". How or where do you do you that? Is it the same thing as a flouro? And Does Dr. Ortiz do this on your first visit?

I have also read on several sites that it is recommended to have an upper endoscopy every two years to check for erosion. This can be done by a gastroenterologist. A scope (tube with light and camera) is passed through the mouth and into the esophagus and then into the stomach. The GI doc will check the pouch and the area of the stomach which the band surrounds to ensure that there is no internal erosion.
