Well, it was a great class. I learned so much! I learned that they are having more and more issues with the Lap Bands. I also learned that the actual By-pass has more side effects than I'm willing to put up with. The Gastric Sleeve though seems to be the one for me. It is in the middle and has a 3 oz pouch not a 1 oz pouch in the end. Also the diet afterwards in the end is just regular food, just less of it, and you can still take your normal meds. It also doesn't have the extra issues that the other two have. As far as weight loss it is faster than the Lap band but slower than the By-pass. So I guess I'm kind of a middle of the road person.
The only problem now is the pesky little 6 months being followed by a Dr on a diet. So it looks like it will be 6 Months out. Sigh. 6 more months of pain. I'll still be working on losing it on my own but without being able to work out much we'll see if I can keep this going.
