If I have an ulcer, will i need lap band revision surgery? I'm nervous about having lap band revision surgery on my stomach. Is this kind of surgery usually successful? Is it any riskier than my original surgery?
Although : Although the situation you describe is unclear, it seems that you may have had a lap band and now found to have an ulcer near the area of the band and that you have been suggested to have this revised. If indeed this is the case, you should consider whether you have taken medications that may have increased the risk for stomach ulceration, such as the use of Aspirin or steroids. It that is not the case and the ulcer is near the vicinity of the lap band, then one should consider whether this is a lap band erosion, which can occur if the reservoir is overfilled, incorrectly placed, or other events, such as prolonged vomiting may have preceded this. As this occurs in about 3-5% of cases, it is not common, but the treatment will require removal of the lap band. In this case, another lap band is not usually recommended, but rather consideration to conversion to another bariatric procedure, such as sleeve gastrectomy, after the ulcer is healed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
