Potential Lap Band Complications?

Tell me the bad stuff no one tells ya about!!!

I am researching the lap band surgery. I want to know all the bad stuff. The stuff no one told you about. The stuff that was really difficult to get thru. Whether it be cost, fills, recovery food,shakes,sex...I want to hear it all. I am especially interested in things like slipping or erosion. Simple and complex complications.

I want to have my eyes wide open before I make my decision.

To all that have had or will have the procedure...Best of Luck
Health and Happiness

You can never again have a drink or cup of tea with your meals.
Resteraunts are out
Alchol is difficult
Reflux is a real possibility
Hunger is reduced but your mind will still test your resolve.

After successful weight loss saggy skin boobs batwinged arms belly skirts and droopy thigh skin are notible.
If vomiting is regular your teeth will slowly disolve away.
Studdies show that after five years many banders have traded their weight loss for a miriad of other less debilitating and inconvinient discomforts.
