Hi John
You are doing the right thing by reading lots of diferent posts, I know its somtimes not what you want to read when you’re pre op but as sombody else said, the vast majority of people are just fine it is the people who have problems that tend to post.
That said, I did have problems and I think now if I was offered the Band or Bypass I would definately go for the Bypass. I think Bypass is a bigger op but bands although initially safer op seems to have the potential to have more complications later.
The last thing I want to do is put you off as even with all my problems I do not regret having my weight loss surgery just think I made the wrong choice.
Sorry bandsters, dont want to upset anybody but the guy who removed my band said he was seeing more and more band complications.
