Adjustable gastric band is associated with the following side effects:

  • Difficulty eating protein that is too large or too dry- once we tighten the band so it will work, the lumen is much narrower than your normal stomach. You will need to make sure your protein is in small pieces, moist, and well chewed.
  • Difficulty ingesting water easily- you will need to consume water more frequently but in small amounts to ingest what you need to avoid dehydration.
  • Upper abdominal pressure or chest pressure - often caused by eating too fast.

Thomas' success story

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.
