When I first had it done, it slipped after awhile. They then replaced it. Over the last couple of yrs.I have put all of that weight back on. I went back to surgeon and my fluid had dropped down to 1 1/2 mls. So he increased it slowly until I got up to 3 1/2mls, then I couldn't eat or drink hardly anything. And I became dehydrated & had to have it empted. Then started again back up to 3 1/2 mls. Then I got very bad reflux & had to have it removed again. He then did test to see if it had slipped, leaking or corroded. Then the last test was a light put down my throat to see if there was anything. All test showed nothing. So he said he has no idea why it isn't working. So now he says I need to decide if I want to leave it in , remove it all together & have a sleeve? Has anybody had both surgeries? And would like to talk about it? My current weight is 84.7 I'm 160 tall And age 61. I want to get down to 65kg.
