I had lap-band surgery on June 5th of this year and my best friend had the gastric. Lap-band patients do not suffer malnutrition like the gastric. Gastic patients may loose thier hair..... Does anyone want to add???

I had the band installed on June 22, 2006...So I have had it just over a year so far...I have lost 77 lbs so far and have been very happy with the outcome so far...As far as the hair issue, I did have a severe hair loss starting at about the 2-3 month mark afterwards to almost the 10 month mark...You still have to make sure that you get plenty of supplements in but the hair loss does slow down and eventually stop...I will never regret getting the band, its was almost one of my best choices in life
