Well it started by me wanting to have a child. I was diagnosed with PCOS at 17 so they told me I would never conceive. Anyway, we wanted to try again and when we went for the meeting the first thing she said was have you thought about WLS....I was like no, so she set me up for the appointment and I went and was intrigued from there. So I started out with wanting the lapband because it was less invasive and less complications. Hubby wanted from the beginning the sleeve but I just ignored him. Now I am debating between the two and which one would be better for me when I get ready to conceive. Also I have high blood pressure, my family history of diabetes scares me a lot. I am over being unhealthy and overweight I am ready to have a new healthy lifestyle.
