    As an obese (100 lbs overweight) food addict, I can tell you that I have checked into weight loss surgeries a few times and have decieded against it, only because if I don’t deal with my food addiction FIRST, I will just re-gain the weight. People don’t think this is possible, but my sister, who had lap band durgery and then bariatric bypass surgery, gained almost every bit of her weight back and is the worst health of her young (age 40) life. I just don’t think it is the “cure all” like people make it out to be.

    I had the surgery last June & have gained approximately 30 pounds since the day of my procedure. I just recently had my band tightened & lost 2 pounds in a month. My food intake has probably dropped by half, but it’s not the quick fix that some make it out to be. Even with a drastically reduced calorie intake, the weight is not “falling off” & I am going to have to work for every pound I lose.

    I had the surgery 6 months ago and have lost 20 lbs and have had some minor problems. I just experienced a slip which caused my doc to take all the fluid out of my band to correct the problem. I have to start over again with my adjustments. I would do again in a heartbeat.
