Hi, I'm Missy. While looking on internet about pre-op and post-op procedures for lap band surgery. I found this forum, so Here I am. I am scheduled to have Lap band done Jan. 16th 2014 with Dr. Joya in Mexico. WHile I'm super excited I'm equally nervous. I haven't told my family what I'm doing, they just know I'm going to Mexico with fiance for a week. The reason I'v not told them is they think if I truely wanted to loose weight I would do it on my on..also they thing being 212 lbs isn't enough to have surgery done. However, for four years I've been wanting to have lap band surgery, I have been on this roller coaster long enough.
Yes, I have tried everything out there on the market...yes I lost weight 12 lbs, 18 lbs, 2 lbs I even got down to 155..divorce, but I always gain it back. I have size 10 pants all the way to size 18 pants. I want to maintain a size 10. I truely want this surgery done, to assist me in maintaing a good healthy weight and to feel good about my self!
