15. I don't have a high opinion of the lap band procedure

I know someone who tried it for a while but it didn't work for her so she went back and had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy instead. That helped her a lot with her weight.

At the time I had my surgery the hospital I went to offered roun-y bypass, VSG, or the lap band. I went with VSG since it wasn't going to be doing a bunch of re-routing and I didn't feel comfortable having plastic parts inside me that would have to be adjusted over time. The hospital no longer offers the lap band procedure any more because of the limited success people had with it.

I'm pleased with how my surgery turned out. Even though I'm not below 200 I have more energy than I used to, have more options for clothes, and can go out when it's warmer out and not be drenched in sweat.
