  1. I was wondering is there was anyone that has had their lap band removed and a gastric bypass completed? My band seems to have a mind of its own and I am now awaiting approval from my insurance provider to replace it. If there is anyone that I can lean on for questions about life after the bypass and removal that would be great!

  2. Hello everyone. My name is Allie. I have been lurking here for a while, but finally decided to start posting.

    I'm 22 years old and 264 pounds.

    Finally ready to make a change that is going to better my life and my future.

    I have been to my psych evaluation and the nutritionist already, just have to see a sleep doctor and I'm going to be submitted to insurance.

    I'm really nervous, but excited at the same time. Also I can't help but feel worried about if I fail at this too, I have only failed at weight loss before in my life.

    I know this is the right decision for me, but I hope I can do it.


    I understand the way your feeling completely. I began the 3 months of diet and psch. consult 2 months ago and am awaiting the final month before surgery. I was leaning towards gastic bypass, but No longer. I'll go with the band. I was worried about failing too, but whats helped is packing my lunches, and charting everthing I eat or drink. If you havent started that I suggest you do! :cool:
