So, I had my consent signing appointment today! In the visit, my doctor tried to talk me out of having the lapband and into gastric bypass or the sleeve. My response was I don't want to have anything in my body rerouted or taken out. I asked him why. He states because they have the least complications in the long run. My question is has anyone doctor advised them of such? And, do anyone with the lapband now regret not choosing another weightloss option?
I've finally been approved after a looong wait! I'm so excited! Now, have to wait until next Friday for my visit to the Doctor to get a schedule date. But, I'm still thankful. Plus, I'm not on a pre-op diet!
This is my first Blog! Yay me! lol But, I must say this site has really helped my with many questions that have been floating in my mind. Tomorrow, I have the last of my test done and then on to the submission to my insurance. I hoping all goes well the first time! So may be I will be banded in late July or early August! I look forward to interacting with many of you and hope to find a buddy to share this
