My Lap Band - Fort Worth, TX
Best thing I ever did for myself. I have always...
- 15 Dec 2011
Best thing I ever did for myself. I have always struggled with my weight and as I got older it became harder to lose. But when I developed adult onset diabetes in addition to high blood pressure I knew that I needed to do something fast. A friend of mine had the lap band done and she had nothing but good things to say about the procedure.
My experience was relataively uncomplicated. I was sore for a few days, but up and about in 72 hrs, back at work in 4 days. I have had to relearn to eat, there are alot of foods that I can no longer eat, but thats ok... I dont need to eat bread anyway. I love to eat veggies, and I have a new love for fish.
This had opened up a whole new world for me. As of 12-07-2011 I have lost a total of 40 lbs and I'm wearing a size 10. Haven't seen that number in years, plus I feel so good and have so much energy.
