I had the lap band 10 years ago and had no success.  I couldn't seem to keep any food down besides slider foods.  I converted to a sleeve 5 years ago, which was so much better.  Both of these surgeries were self pay.  In the past year, I experienced GERD, hiatal hernia and major weight regain.  I am scheduled for hernia repair and RNY in November. 
Fortunately, the third time's the charm and insurance eventually agreed to cover this round.  The primary goal is to resolve the hernias and GERD, but I am really hopeful that I can use this new tool to get back on track with my weight and my health.
