My name is Tom and I just had a revision, lap band to bypass this past Monday, 5/18/15. Had the lap band for about 5 years, effective for about 1 and then kept gaining no matter what I did/didn't do. My doc was not helpful at all so got a second opinion from my new doc. Love him and his team. Had the surgery 4 days ago and am doing ok. Have a drain in for the week. No problems with sipping, getting my walks in but still pretty tired. I was very active before the surgery bikiing and walking and hoping I will rebound quickly. Looking forward to blendeds next week. See my doc next Thursday. 5'11, 347 at surgery.
Happy to see there is a men's group. Love the women but sometimes the issues are so different.
Any advice 4 days in is very welcome.
Nice to meet you all.
