Lapband to Gastric Sleeve

The fill under flouro did not show a leak, however we put 9cc's in my band and 2 weeks later I was back down to 6. The PA said "So do you want to fix the band or do you want to revise?" Duh I want a revision. Now don't get me wrong, I loved my band, when it was working! He wrote a long note in my chart and went over all of my information with me. I still qualify for WLS per my insurance. So we are going to go ahead with trying to get me revised to the sleeve. I am so excited for this ordeal to be over. The case manager came in, explained what I needed to do before we submitted the paperwork to my insurance. I need to redo all of the classes I did with the lap-band. The intro class, nutrition, support and the one on one with the doctor. The only thing I do not have to do is see the shrink! Thank Goodness!

She said due to my BMI and that it is not my fault that my band has an obvious leak I should be approved the first go around. Please say a prayer for me. They will call me within a week so I can start my classes. I keep looking at my phone wishing it would ring so I can just start them.
