Hey there, I am an old bandit too. I was sleeved on the last day in January this year and my loss is a little slower than other non bandits, but it has been steady and I think spectacular, and already I have lost more than I ever did with the sleeve. But the biggest point of difference is that I am happy healthy and not hungry.....being sleeved is like being set free. don't get me wrong....still hard work and only a tool to assist me on my journey but oh soooo much more than the terrible band that nearly killed me.
good luck on your journey.

Hi there Zouzouni,

welcome to the forum :)  I still have my band at present, but will eventually get it out then sleeved.  From what I've read, if you've been banded, weightloss will be a bit slower, but still successful.  Most ex bandits talk about the freedom and joy in being able to eat anything without all the drama the band puts us through lol.  So looking forward to that one!

Hi zouzouni, Welcome!

There's a whole section here called something like 'band to sleeve'. I've not been banded and i'm not sleeved yet, either.  But I think there are many ex-bandits on here.  Also there is a search function in the main menu area on the top bar (in the old version of the forum), you'll be able to find lots that way too.

I know many people say how the sleeve is much easier to manage than the band.  And weigh loss, statistically is better.

Good-luck, and I'll be seeing you around,
Arna

Hi everyone! I came across this site and thought it would be wonderful to join. I was Lap Banded 5 years ago and after not having much success I decided to have a revision and go ahead with the Gastric Sleeve. My revision was this Tuesday 27th May and will need 12 weeks of healing before doing the Sleeve.  I was wondering what the success rate has been for those of you that were Banded before.. and now sleeved? Any regrets? Cheers
