I had my band put in about 6 months ago and I have lost 42kg to date.
It is not easy, my intake of food is practically not existent.
I get my nutrients from liquid vitamins.
My exercise is limited, so my weight loss has been virtually effortless.
I had tried every other diet known to man without success.
For me, the success has been food intake (or lack of it), and if I didn't have the band in, there is no way that I would have lost the weight.
The simple fact of the matter is, I don't have a choice.
Is it the safest way? Heck no, but neither is being morbidly obese.
I am doing this under the strictest of medical advice.
A hard thing is having to buy clothes every other week as I lose a size every month.
That is costly - so factor that in.
I would recommend that you look into this and weigh up the pros and cons.
For me, the pros out weighed the cons and I am happy I did it.
People treat me differently, even though I know I haven't changed personality.
That is frustrating! I miss food though :-(

I work on a surgical floor in a hospital where this is done.
I see people who diets "never worked for" Maybe maybe one in a hundred actually seriously dieted and NONE ever exercise.
As I see it, its the easy way out for people who cannot stick to real diet and exercise.
Thats why they come back later on after they burst the band because they keep eating themselves to death-literally.

Weight loss surgery-like gastric bypass /lap band surgery / stomach stapling and gastrectomy have become very common and very safe now. My cousin got her Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery in India. She has lost more than 65 lbs in 5 months and is very happy with the results. The price for obesity surgery is very less in India. My cousin just paid 25% of the cost she was quoted in America. She got her surgery from a company called Forerunners Healthcare.

Forerunners Healthcare is very famous in India. I read a lot about them in the Newspapers and magazines. I have read a lot of their patient stories also. They arrange financing for USA, Canadian, UK and other international patients who plan to have surgery abroad for low cost, as bariatric surgery and weight loss surgery is not covered by insurance. They also have photos pasted of their International patients. You can checkout their website. There are huge cost savings. As a doctor I personally believe that your Obesity surgery can be easily handled in India, as the quality of healthcare available In India is simply best in the world. The surgeons are USA/UK trained and facilities are 5 star.


Hope this helps.
