So, Gov Christie got a lap band
As a Jersey Girl, i'm seeing reports of this EVERYWHERE, and i feel sorry for him - people around the world are watching him, even more than they watched Al Roker. BTW, they had surgery at the same hospital - but different docs.
But I'm really amazed at some of the comments - his doc has been called a quack for recommending lapband instead of a sleeve or a bypass. Christie has been called weak-willed and all kinds of other things. Some have said that he's doing in preparation for a Presidential run [maybe, but I do believe him when he says that he's done it for himself and for his family].
IMO, a lab band may or may not have been the best choice for him, but it did give him privacy when he had the procedure done, and he can convert it later if he needs to. After all, he won't have an issue with insurance denials!!!
