Question Lapband after gastric bypass?

Is it possible to have the lapband procedure done after gastric bypass? I wish the lapband was available at the time of my surgery). My surgery was a simple stomach stapling, and never did quite take. I lost only 50 lbs. This was over 15 years ago. It is all back now. Thanks

Re: Lapband after gastric bypass?

It can be done it depends on the type of band you get my surgeon has done it. I had my band fitted 8 years ago and have lost 160lbs and kept it off. Good luck with your decision.
