Weight Loss and Surgery

I have a friend who will shortly be undergoing lap band surgery in order to lose weight. The idea of any kind of surgery makes me beyond nervous, but I understand her frustrations with her situation and respect her choice.

If you or someone you know is considering having this type of surgery done,I think it is imperative to talk to doctors, to people that have had lap band surgery if possible, and do as much research yourself on the procedure, insurance issues, finding the right surgeon etc. The more information and advice you get will help you decide if this procedure is right for you or not.
