    February Bandsters?

    Yes he gave me several reasons of why he preferred this procedure over the Band and all of his reasons were valid. I won't get into any specifics, because I don't want to discourage or disrupt anyone else's decision or recovery, but if you really want to know you can send me a private message and I will be more than happy to tell you the reasons.

  11. Do you have to stay overnight after the procedure? Or is it generally an outpatient surgery?

    Ummmm....LEGALLY she can't ask you that either. I haven't told ANYONE what I'm being off for. That's what FMLA is for. Are you going to use FMLA??? My superviser approved me with NO QUESTIONS.
