Jo, I'm sure damage could be done if your violently throwing up day after day, especially in the beginning when your newly banded, you could tear the stitches. If you know you have a hard time with meds then you might want to reconsider having the band and talking to your doctor about what could happen. I don't think some one who has a hard time with meds, throwing up and stomach pain would be a good candidate for the band or any WLS.
