  12. What's best band or bypass?

    I was afraid to have the band with all of the risks. Also, I wanted something that will help me keep my weight off for a lifetime. I haven't been sick at all with my GB. I am only 2 weeks post op but very happy so far. It is a personal choice, your surgeon she speak with you about all options and you will be more comfortable with your decision.
