Since the begining of the year when I first started thinking about WLS I have had set in my mind the lap band. So that is all I have researched, never did it cross my mind to even consider the gastric by pass, never until today.
We went to a friends party today & I mentioned to her I was in the process of getting banded soon. She told me about her sister in law whom I know, and even though I had noticed she (the sil) had lost a lot of weight it didn't even cross my mind that she had had any surgery done. I come to find out she had the gastric done. She has lost a lot of weight and as a matter of fact just recently had a baby & right after the baby she was able to loose all the weight.
So now that I know someone personaly that has had it done I am interested in finding out more about it and seeing if that is for me. Since all I have been researching is the lap band that is mostly all I haqve seen as far as blogs & vlogs.
Has anyone had the bypass?
And the ones with the band... what made you decide to do the band instead of the bypass?
I really need some imput please.
