I researched the operation for over a year before it was done. I also spoke to others who had the lapband, and had talks with my doctor, dietician and physiotherapist before I went ahead.
I beleive that it is very important to talk to others who have had this operations and to also research and find a doctor your are comfortable with before making any decisions.
I am very happy with my operation even though I'm still in the during process. I can now walk without gasping for air and my hips and knees are no longer giving me pain.
I have recently joined a gym and have dropped three dress sizes. I can now go shopping without having to rest every 20-30 minutes, life is so much better!
