Shelley, the lap band procedure is less evasive, but I don't think the aftercare is. My best suggestion is to keep researching the other options and pick the one as a WHOLE that would work best for you.
You're bound to get a ton of people telling you how great the LB is and hopefully it worked great for them. But there are also people out there that had the LB and have had several complications with the weight loss and the fills, not to mention the expenses.
Some things I've never heard supporters tell people are that the fills are not always covered by insurance and they are a couple hundred dollars each time. Some people get fills every month. I know 3 women and 2 men who have had to go for various testing just to find the port for the fill and they ALL say it's painfull, yet they were ALL told it wasn't so bad by supporters. It's great to have support but not when it hides facts you might need to know.
The weight loss is much slower and the food you are able to eat are the same as you are eating now, which in my opinion, is not a tool that would benefit future weight loss. Let's be honest, if you could loose weight by eating everything you are now, you wouldn't be here contemplating surgery for weight loss. The LB is ONLY a restrictive method of weight loss and does nothing to train your body to eat right in the future. However, there are people who only need to eat less, so if your one of those people, and your schedule permits you to run around getting tests and fills every month or so, and you have the money, then this might be your best option. Just look into other options before making a final decision. Go to the LB forums and read profiles of people that are a year or more post op. Compare those profiles to those of people who have had RNY and are a year or more post op. Look at the differences in recovery, aftercare, weightloss, etc.
Good Luck with your decision, no one knows you better than you.
