I've been stuggling with my weight for years and hasn't changed and am going to my endocrinologist about my option with the lap band also my current weight is 250lbs my long term goal I want to weigh is 150lbs
I had a friend recently do the duodenal switch and he has not had one complication and is now down over 200 pounds. He did a bunch of research beforehand on which surgery and which surgeon was right for him. I think whichever surgery you go for you have to really make sure you do that research and get the best fit and best surgeon you can.
I also have been considering surgery. I'm unsure which is the best
I also weigh 250lbs and have lost it before. I am pretty determined to do it myself but hope that you find the right answer for you :) I have seen good things with Lap bands in friends :)
Most bariatric surgeons don't do the lap band any more. The most common surgeries are the gastric bypass (RNY), gastric sleeve and the duodenal switch ( gastric sleeve with rerouting the intestine to mal absorb).
I had the duodenal switch almost 14 months ago. Best decision I've ever made.
