I received a letter from my insurance saying they won’t pay for my band removal/revision due to the fact there is no infection to port ,slip , or erosion . I truely hate this thing ! The dr office assured me getting the band out wasn’t going to be an issue , they were expecting difficulty getting the RNY approved . I am miserable with This crappy band it is completely empty I still Puke once a week minimum have random tightness and slimming .This sucks !!!

What about your quality of life? Or potential to develop Barrets esophagus from the recurrent vomiting? Maybe speak to your doctor about this. More often than not they have a few tricks up their sleeves on what to say to these insurance companies. Don't give up :)
