  • I personally have not but have friends who have and it definately is a surgery that varies from person to person. One lady I worked with had little to no results, but on the other hand two other friends who have lost alot of weight with this procedure. Their only complaint to this day 9 years later is that it is still hard to eat steak and other harder meats. Good luck to you with this!

  • There have been a few I have known but ...but it is so much healthier to just lose weight naturally by eating much less and gradually adding exercise every day...walking is fine. ANY surgery is dangerous. Eating less saves your life.
