Surgery scheduled......Band Removal Only
I have my plan, even though it is not what I had hoped would have happened today. I am scheduled to have my band removed on Monday morning at 8am. No revision at this time. Dr. Marshall advised me that he was going to have Dr. Debord remove the band, since he is my surgeon. That he was no comfortable doing the revision at this time, since I am still in pain. He wants to make sure that the pain resolves before he considers revision.
I sort of feel like he went back on everything he had been talking to me about, but I in no way want someone doing surgery on me who doesn't want to either. I love Dr. Debord he will be floored to see me in the OR. The last time I saw him was on the 7th of February when all was great! The next morning all hell broke loose for my band.
Dr. Marshall did not say we would NOT do the revision he just said not right now. I am ok with that, I am holding onto something one of me beloved BOOBS posted to me on Facebook. This is not all about the BAND! I have lived banded live for nearly five years, I know how to eat, and what to eat, I also know that exercise is the KEY! So I have to focus, I will NOT gain this weight back I refuse.
I wanted to let everyone know. This is what is happening. He told me that my esophagus shows that my band was too tight and that is more than likely why all of this is happening. I have been unfilled for three weeks and still having issues. So time for removal.
I will try to stay calm and keep updating here. I hope it is not wrong for me to continue to blog in a community that is about being banded, when I will no longer have a band. I believe you all love me, no matter what!
