I am sort of new to bariatric pal. I have been reading and getting inspired for over a year. I had lap band surgery back in 2009. I thought that was when my life was going to change forever. I thought I finally had a tool that was going to help me but it did not turn out that way. Over time the band has given me more and more problems. I don't want to discourage anybody from it but it just wasn't for me and caused a lot of pain and discomfort over time. Anyone who asks me about it I will not recommend it but it's your choice at the end of the day. So long story short I have been finally approved after 2 insurance denials for a revision to the sleeve. My surgery is going to be May 8th and I feel more prepared this time. I've done my homework and made some food changes before hand. I'm beyond on excited for the future.
