$15,000+ and it worked for awhile then I couldn't even swallow my saliva

I lost some weight but as for the lap band, don't waste your money! I have gained all my weight back because the lap band wouldn't let me eat or drink so I had to have it loosened. As for any help in fixing it, nope. Now I want to try the sleeve but I can't see spending another $15,000 and it doesn't work. I want that full feeling and with the lap band it was the starvation because I couldn't eat without it coming back up!
