Lap Band to sleeve

2 posts in this topic

I just had gastric sleeve surgery and removal of my lap band almost seven weeks ago. I am beyond happy. I can't believe the difference between the sleeve and the lap band. I was in so much pain with the lap band and got sick constantly. My only fear is leaking with the sleeve. Does anyone know how long that is a possibility? Is it a lifelong thing? Or is it just a concern in the first few months?

Leaking would be an immediate post-op complication. You're pretty much healed inside at 7 weeks.
