WAITING FOR APPROVAL. MY PAPERWORK WAS SENT INTO BCBS OCT 26TH, WAITING.....................LOOKING FORWARD TO A HEALTHIER LIFE. . II HAVE BEEN FIGHTING A WEIGHT PROB FOR MANY YEARS, .  I STARTED THINKING LAST SPRING ABOUT DOING SOMETHING DRASTIC ABOUT MY WEIGHT BUT WASNT SURE WHAT. THEN 2 RELATIVES BOTH HAD LAPBAND AROUND JUNE 1. 2011, MALE AND FEMALE. AS OF TODAY, NOV 13, SHE HAS LOST ABOUT 45 LBS, AND HE HAS LOST ABOUT 100 LB S.   WOW...BOTH HAVE SAID IT WAS THE BEST THING THEY COULD HAVE DONE. BOTH HAVE HAD MINIMAL PROBLEMS. THEIR ADVICE TO ME IS GO FOR IT, AND JUST FOLLOW THE DR'S ORDERS AND YOU'LL DO FINE.      CAN'T WAIT  !.
