had 7/19/2011 Roux-En-Y..amazing experience thus far. I've lost 30lbs so far.
I got the gastric bypass 2004 so I would lose weight and have children...A week after I had the surgery I started my period and got it every month since right on schedule. My then husband and I tried and tried to have children but we found out he couldnt. We divorced. My now husband has kids and we tried for a baby too but couldnt conceive. We stopped trying now.

Have had the lap band for 1 year. It does work for me. I am still in the weight loss process.
Working / Worked
Had lapband, lost 60 pounds quickly. 50 more to go. But it does work if you eat protein first, then a few bites of veggies. I probably need a fill, but once again, time to travel 45 minutes to get a fill is hard to fit in. I am happy with my band as my weight has remained stable and you are NOT HUNGRY>
