Exactly right, Lynn B. I wish I never had the Lap-band done. It seemed to do good when I first gotten it, although I never gotten down to my goal weight, but then I gained all my weight back :/ The only thing that benefited me from the Lap-band is that I learned that nothing is a magical cure. I'm thinking about having my lap-band taken out and have a gastric plication done. At least I know to be more stricker on myself the next time around :)
I was just curious how your surgery went. I am having the plication added to my lapband on October 1, 2013 and was wandering if you had any complications and how you have done thus far.
