My name is Hollie. I had the LAP-BAND® surgery this past October 3, 2007 in a teen study through UCSD Medical center. Over the last year, I have had a lot of changes in my life. I finally turned 18 (WOO HOO!) and I dumped the dipstick I was with before I had the surgery. I am currently enjoying my life so much more and have a way better sense of self worth.
