  • My grandma has one, she simply eliminated bready products from her diet. She had no excess weight to lose. My MIL has one and was told surgery was her only choice. She's fairly heavy though so now I wonder if losing weight would help her, as she's having trouble with it again.

  • I have had one since birth. I haven't had any problems with it.

  • Once you lose weight it shrinks and finally would go away.
