GATRIC BALLOON PROCEDURES:
In a very small number of people, the Gastric Balloon may have to be removed early primarily due to 'intolerance' in this instance 'intolerance' refers to but is not limited to, the body's ongoing physical rejection of the balloon, emotional and physical aversion to the normal side effects associated with balloon insertion, both during the post insertion period and at any point during the normal 6 month insertion period.
Incidences of 'balloon intolerance' (for whatever reason) are extremely low, approx 97% of people will be able to 'tolerate' the presence of the balloon for the recommended 6 month period.
