Glad the Lap Band is working for you . I had one put in about 2.5 years ago and it didn't do much for me . Turns out I don't eat because I'm hungry so it didn't really help. Now that I have the mental stuff taken care of I'm doing good. Had them take all the stuff out of mine because my trainer and I were pretty sure it was making me sick during workouts. Haven't felt dizzy while working out since they took the stuff out .
