I am 5'1'' and 195 pounds. I have a BMI of 37. I do qualify to have either one of these surgeries done but not sure which way to go. I do have some health issues but none that will restrict me from surgery.

Im not overly obese but I would like to be healthier. Can you loose to much weight after gastric bypass? What complications could I face? Anyone have complications with the lap band? Which would be better for me?

Hey there,

I've never heard of a Lap Band after a bypass. You may want to submit a question to the doctors, using our doctor Q&A form.

Hope this helps!

Kirsty,,,when you having your gastric bypass?
