Lap Band Revision Surgery

on 5/2/12 9:47 am
Please....I need some good advice.  I had the lap band done 4 years ago and lost 50lbs.  I've kept it off, but have been unable to lose any more.  I am now about 2 weeks away from a revision surgery and still have not decided if I should go with the Bypass or Sleeve.  I still have about 100 lbs. to lose, have diabetes and sleep apnea.  My main goal is to have these health issues resolved.  My surgeon told me that the prodcedure I have is entirely up to me, since they are both good surgeries and both are covered by my insurance.  Every time I think I've made up my mind, I find something out that makes me sway back to the other procedure.  Is there anybody else out there who has been in this situation??  I would appreciate your opinions.  Thanks

I am in the same situation.  My doctor recommended the Bypass.  Saw the nutritionist yesterday. Appointments with the psychiatrist and cardiologist on the 21st.  I am nervous,but I want my health back.
