I had Lap Band Surgury10 Feb, 2010, and have lost 87 lbs. It seems like I come down sick more ofter now, Flu like symptons and have missed work because of it.
Answer 1 Sometimes it might be happen that after the lap band surgery you may get affect by some of the flu like symptoms. Causes of flu like symptoms are Anthrax, Blast mycosis, Bornholm disease, Brain infection, Brucellosis.
When you get this type of problem at that type of situation take some antibiotics. But you should keep in the mind that before taking any antibiotics you may consult to your surgeon. If you will take any other antibiotics it may harm to your body or you may have some kind of risk. And after the surgery these type of complication might be happen. So always consult your surgeon before taking any antibiotics.
