lap banding on soap opera



Recommended Posts

Has anyone been watching the soap opera Guiding Light? They are running a story line about a female (Ashlee) getting the lap band. She is going through the same things I have been reading on these forums. She got negative comments about the surgery from her mother and told she could just eat less and exercise more. Her boyfriend told her that he loved her just as she was. It's unreal how the storyline hits home with the emotions she is going through with the process. She finally decided to go through with the surgery after second guessing herself due to others thoughts on the surgery. I am now going to watch this soap opera to see how her weight loss progresses. It is said that she had the surgery and it is now being written into the storyline due to the fact she will be dropping weight on the show.:biggrin:

Yeah I watch it too. That was weird to see that one day on there and I was shocked. It will be great to see what she looks like later on on there. I think her and Coop do good together..

I don't watch the show. I don't know the character. I do think it is a good tie in with her storyline.

I googled GL and the procedure and read a few posts on a soap opera forum.

I must have read ten (on one page) posts about how this is not permanent, and reversible. The misinformation is rampant.

I hope they are thorough with their research.

I know a medical consultant (to the writers of SA's) and she has some stories about the soaps.

Let me guess, the actress playing the character weighs 150 lbs?

Soaps are known for being the first in Hollywood to broach tough subjects in their story lines. Kudos to the writers of Guiding Light and to this actress. Wouldn't be nice for us to let them know how much this appreciated by writing them?

I haven't watched GL in a few weeks. I finally caught it on Friday. I am so excited to see that Ashlee's character is having the surgery. I think it will open a lot of eyes to what we have gone through. I hope they play it off truthfully.
