I've been over weight for 17 years, planning on getting lap band, has anyone had the procedure done and what have been the results?
I have not but the lap band is a great alternative to Gastric Bypass. It has less side effects and can be adjusted when needed unlike gastric surgery. Best wishes.

Personally no experience with it. Did have a friend of ours do it though. He losts lots of wieght over a year and looked good. Though I don't know how he managed his diet or what he ate or anything. But he looks great.
