I don't have much of a story to tell... I decided to have WLS almost a year ago and it has been a long road. Insurance finally approved me and I couldn't be happier!!! I'm fairly young for having the surgery, but that's just one of the reasons I chose the band. I am a full-time college student...I would really appreciate any guidance others have to offer since I am coming from a community (being in a college atmosphere) where there isn't much of a support network of people who have had the surgery.
