i had the same surgery back in feb 2011 that you are doing... i actually went to the same practice -- dr. bruce. the plication did help more than the band did but i had a pretty poor experience with the band.... i dont know if it was because i just had so much to lose or if it just wasnt good for the type of person i am .. i had problems with food getting stuck, problems with them finding my port for fills/unfills.... i got so frustrated with the care... i lost at first then it almost became impossible i was still hungry all the time!  i ended up switching to dr. sharp and dr. ng at rex surgical specialists. long story short i just had a revision to gastric bypass on 10/2 it already feels soooooooo much different and like the right choice for me finally. the weight is melting off. i am not trying to change your mind or scare you out of anything, you have to do whats right for you and i dont know you or your reasons but if you have any doubts go get a 2nd opinion with sharp or ng.... feel free to message me directly if you have any specific questions.
