Lap Band Surgery Monday November 30. What a Relief - New York

I have done a lot of work reading and talking to people about the surgery. I had a gastric bypass 29 years ago that turned out to be a nightmare. I went to Columbia Pres in NYC and met Dr Mark Bessler. He did a revision and cut out the adhesions. My they put a tube in my blockage and it accidentally emptied the contents on my stomach into my body, I spent a month in the hospital and lost 80lbs the hard way not eating. It is now all gained back. The good news is that I am alive and well. Monday Nov30 I will have the lap band procedure. I am now humbled and this it my last try at bariatric surgery. Wish me luck.

The Night before the Band

I am ready to go for the procedure. I am a bit anxious but all is good. It may sound silly but the moment before they put me under is my biggest worry. I have surgery at 12pm Monday morning, Wish me good luck and I will update all on the other side.
