  1. Had lap band removed in July, emergency surgery. I have gained 39 pounds and have diabetes, hypertension and high lipids . My BMI is 35.9 . Will I qualify for weight loss surgery?

      I think you'll qualify. I had to have my lap band removed last year after 10 years and my surgeon wanted to "see how I did without it." Not surprisingly I put on 50lbs in 9 mos. Had mini gastric bypass at the end of September and have taken those pounds off, but I'm kind of wishing I got a sleeve (having bad reactive hypoglycemia now).
