i've been so busy with a sick baby (damn ear infections) that i haven't had much chance to think about my upcoming appointment or blog about it. tomorrow is my pre-op results visit and hopefully the day we will schedule my surgery. i am so ready to quit talking about WLS like it is some far off distance land. - in my best veruca voice "i want it now!"
last night my mother-in-law was talking about WLS and that her doctor had recommended she go to a seminar on the lap band. now, even though she doesn't have as much weight to lose as me, i really think she would be better with GBP instead of the band. - why you ask ?? - i just don't think she is committed enough to be able to work the band. for example, she had knee replacement surgery over a year ago and didn't do all of her physical therapy so she still has a bad limp. i think she would have it taken out after a few months because it would require too much from her. at least with GBP as long as she ate in small doses - she could eat whatever she wanted and still lose weight.
