    Envious of friend that has had GB

    i just want to say i understand how you feel. my girlfriend has bypass surgery & lost 150 pounds but by the time i got banded she had gained 80 of it back . your weight is gone forever if you keep up with the aftercare. bypass patients just dont have the aftercare we do & alot of them gain it back . but i do understand what you are feeling but you are doing great . down 50 pounds FOREVER

    Just getting started

    tina, i had cigna when i checked into getting the band. my policy required a 6 month supervised diet plan with my dr. which i didnt have . my insurance changed to united health care 2 months later & they didnt require that . i am 5;4 weighed 207 my bmi was 35.2 i have sleep apena . gerd & high blood pressure so the insurance gave the ok. if you have heartburn please tell your dr of that . good luck the band is the best thing i have ever done for myself. sandie
  16. my dr. does a test to see if you are smoking. if it is positive you cant have the surgery . you have to be smoke free for 3 months. good luck i know its hard. i had to give up cokes (real not diet ) so i know how you feel. sandie
