    Hi,

    I have just got my funding in place for an op and am trying to get my head round which procedure I would choose If am presented with and option. Intitially I was leaning towards a band but have since heard nothinbg but bad things about them. Would a bypass be better?

    Hi there. I was in a similiar position where I was recommended to have the bypass over the band at my first consultation due to my eating habits. All the choccie and crisps would slide right through the band. Even though I've been indecisive in the past few months I made the decision today to go for it.
