My father in law had a lap band put in about a year ago and lost about 150 lbs. Then about 3 months ago his stomach started swelling so his doctor ran some tests and discovered his lap band a horrible infection around it so they decided to remove the lap band a few days later his stomach swelled up so big he looked like he was going to pop so more tests and they found a hole in his stomach after repairing that he got septic and almost died. Well he has recovered somewhat and his doctor won't return his calls. Whenever he eats he gets horrible indigestion and his burps smell so horrible they will make you vomit. He also has a hard area on the upper part of his abdomen about the size of a basketball that is very tender to the touch and he can't get in to see his doctor so I am trying to get some information from anyone who might have an idea about what is going on with him. Any help with be appreciated . Thank you...
