Hi Squoog,

I no exactly how you feel. I was offered both at my assessment and I chose the band but as soon as I left I felt like maybe I had made the wrong choice as the weight loss is much less than the bypass and much slower too. When I came home and told everyone I had got it they were all so please for me and of course I was pleased but my mind was also bogged down with the reality of it. My husband said why do you seem so sad you have been praying and hoping for this for ages now you got it and you seem sad. I can’t really explain it but like you I was a wash with emotions.
I have stuck with my band choice but If you are worried about the bypass purely because of the potential risks you only have to look on here to see all the success stories of people who have had it done to give you some peace of mind. You also have to remember at the assessment they did exactly that assessed you, your lifestyle and needs and in their professional opinion they have told you the option that they feel will be of real benefit to you.
After my assessment I asked myself is it worth the risk? and I answered that I would only continue to pile on the pounds if I don’t do this and as I am now I am so miserable. I owe it to my husband and children to be as healthy & Happy as I can be.

I hoped this has helped a little bit please keep me posted on what you decide xx
