There is going to be a whole lot that will not be easy though. People don't seem to realize that. Thank you for your support. Many people are in disbelief when I even tell them that the FDA has approved the Lap Band for a BMI of 30 with at least another health factor such as being diabetic. Which I am.Sorry, I miss-typed. My BMI was 72-73. Unfortunately, you will get a lot of hate from people. Both from the internet and from people close to you. I lost several relationships because they thought bariatric surgery was the "easy" way out. Mainly from family members. But I also gained a lot of close friends. I'm 2 years postop and don't regret it at all. I hope the surgery goes well.
