Re: on the fence
Hi, my husband had a gastric bypass (regular kind) about 10 years ago, and although he lost weight and his blood pressure and cholesterol are better, he has all kind of digestive problems. He gets gas, diahreea, has terrible acid reflux and throws up a lot. He can't digest meats, chicken, or a lot of the vegetables and fruits like apple and pear.
I'm not saying don't get it done, but maybe do the lap band, so it can be reversed if there's a problem. My husband is often miserable. But it's possible he's just unlucky with this surgery.
I need to lose about 35 lbs. myself, and I"m trying to do it on my own because I see how he is. But I have heard the lap band is a good way to do it, if you want surgery.
