Re: Lap Band!

start by researching online like crazy.
if you have insurance, call them and ask if they cover the surgical treatment for obesity when medically necesary (that part is important). if so, awesome--start researching local surgeons. if not, then start looking into self pay options (home equity loan, other loans, etc)--average price is 15g in the states. most all surgeons offer free seminars which they require you attend before you can proceed with the process. start there.
good luck!
