Wondering if anyone can help with advice. My best friend is currently in America so i'm not able to keep in regular contact with her. She had a lapband put in 18 months or so ago and has lost a drastic amount of weight, about 50kgs or so, she is what i would describe now as underweight and not at all healthy. She is currently spending her second stint in hospital in America last time was for about 5 days, she's unable to keep any fluids or food down, so is severely dehydrated and basically malnourised. The last pic i got of her was with her having a NG tube to be fed and she looked pretty wretched, she looks like someone suffering an eating disorder.
I'm so deeply concerned for her health and i think it's a complication of the lapband. Does anyone know what the process is to fix her? I'm really worried this might kill her, but not sure if i'm over-worrying. If anyone can shed some light, i'd be most appreciated.
