First I want to congratulate all those who are doing so well after their WLS. My husband is getting the LapBand. No date yet, but, pretty close. All he has left to do is the evaluation by the pyscologist. He went for all his tests the nurse sent him for, and although we're still awaiting the results, I do think and pray that everything is fine. To tell you the truth I'm more nervous then him. He is excited and can't wait. I on the other hand am nervous with the surgery itself. I know that LapBand in the less complicated of all WLS, but, my nerves are getting the best of me. He's hoping to get a date for the beginning of April, the 1st or 2nd week at the latest. Oh, and I forgot, I'm also praying that his ins. will cover this. We have MagnaCare from his union and this is another thing I'm worrying about. Well I'm just babbling on and on..I just wanted to contribute to this thread, that I read daily and wish everyone continued success and good luck for those who are taking the step towards a healthier life...
