I had a gastric band removed four days due to slippage. Past two mornings have experienced severe pain "creeping" from waist area into chest and back ?

In brief: See your doc

I your pain is in the chest and back and you are having fevers you should see a doc right away (ER if need be).
You want to make sure there was no injury to the stomach or esophagus when the band was removed. This can be a deadly situation when left too long. I'm not saying that is what it is, I'm just saying you need to confirm that is not the issue as soon as possible.
