Hi , I was also going for the lapband surgery but after meeting with my doctor a couple of times she spoke on how she thinks that the gastric bypass would be better for me. I went with what she said . I had the surgery done on Jan 10th 2012. I have lost alittle over 70 pounds so far. Im doing great and feel so much better . I still have alot more to lose and I am to stay on this journey of mine.
I wanted to tell you I had a friend who had the lapband done and she is doing awesome...she has lost about 120 pounds so far and she needs to lose more ..she was well over 400 pounds. I also have a cousin that had the lapband done and she has lost 70 pounds and then gained 20 back...not sure if it is something she is doing or isnt doing.
What they said to u about having the sleeve done then bypass..thats a first I have ever heard that being done. . I wish you the best of luck. keep in touch ok
