Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band

Mine really isnt a question as much qs a statement. The Band does NOT reduce the size of your stomach!! It reduces the size of the opening to your stomach. Making smaller bites feel like much larger bites... your 'pouch' abive the band is not to be 'filled' as a stomach would; it is to slow your eating down.... banded since 2013.
