I could sit here all night typing about the things that could come as the result of the surgery. Sure I can lose the weight many other ways. I have done so before. But the hope that the band gives me is maybe I can keep the weight off for longer that a second? MAYBE? It just freaks me to see so many stories out there of the people who have their band removed a few years down the track due to complications and then they have to try maintaining on their own. What did they succeed? Losing weight? I could, and did, do it with weight watchers.

Is there any guarantee that the band will help me keep off the weight FOREVER?
