Would You Do It Again



Recommended Posts

Only thing I would change would to have learned in my youth that exercise and good diet choices would have prevented this.

If you had it to do over would you get the lap band or would you go with something else like the sleeve maybe. I'm doing my research on the lap band I just have so many question like can you feel the band.does it bother you while doing any activitys playing with kids , exercise,sex just any everyday activity. Do you have any regrets??

I have no regrets. Not one! To answer your questions...you cannot feel the band. It is around your stomach. You can feel the port but it's just like a knot under the skin. It won't bother you at all. I am very active with my friends kids and my year old granddaughter. No restrictions....in fact the weight loss has improved my activity level.

Exercise isn't a problem...nor is sex. In fact both efforts are improved. I tell everyone about the band who asks, I am proud to tell people I have finally found the answer to losing and keeping the wait off!!

Best of luck to you

Most often, as with any WLS it's not the actual tool that fails, but failure to use the tool. A mechanic can have all the greatest tools in the world, but we all know the the tools can't fix the car, unlessthe mechanic puts them to use.

Thank you for all of the info!! I appreciate it.
