  1. I was banded in 2003, lost all my weight, then gained it all back over the last few years from a medication I'm taking that causes massive weight gain. In the last 2 years, I've developed GERD to the point where I have to keep a cup next to my bed so I can reflux into it all night. I sleep propped up, take tons of Prilosec and my band is empty now. I have a barium swallow next week. Has anyone else been through this? I know the band complication rate is pretty high, especially around 10 years out. I'm just curious if people have had to get it removed due to GERD.
