Had lapband surgery about 15 years go. Lost weight for a while but got to the point I would wake up drowning in my saliva. Had all saline removed and still restricted. I am having lapband taken out and Gastric Sleeve on December 16th! Only my best friend, boss and wife know. I m fired up as I am sick and tired of being fat. I have 1 week left to eat normally and a 1 week liquid diet and 1 day clear before surgery. I am ready to light this candle nd start this journey! I will look like a different person in a year and be happier. Let's get it on!
