Has anyone out there had Lap-Band surgery, and what was your experience like?

I am considering having the surgery, and would just like to hear the stories of anyone out there who's had it. Thanks!

  • A co worker of mines had it done. It worked fine for him. He has lost mega weight. I mean a tremendous of weight. Health wise he does well.
    I wanted to get it done but my GOD sister died from Gastric Bypass so after that I figured I would just stay away from all the surgeries to lose weight.
