doing it for weight loss, high blood pressure. One girl I know had it put in on Friday and she has been vomiting since then. :(
She didn't even need to lose weight and I am really surprised they did the procedure for her but she paid cash and had high blood pressure. Not overweight at all in my opinion but if you go by the BMI charts, it sounds like even skinny people are over weight. RIDICULOUS!
I had the lap band in 08 and it slipped in 10 and I gained my 70 pounds back within the year. That is what makes me wonder about this procedure because they put it in for 6 months and take it out so I would think you would gain it all back pretty quickly. They say you learn how to eat during those 6 months but that didn't happen to me with lap band and I had it two years.
