Today when I went to my follow up appointment and I ran into someone who was in my post op class.
She had lost quite a bit of weight since we last saw each other and I have not lost as much.
She had GBS, I had Lapband.
I see her, smile and compliment her on how good she looks.
Her comment back to me? “You should have had bypass”.
I told her that I was still happy with my decision. I wanted to throttle her.
No matter which surgery you have had, keep in mind that decision was what was best for YOU.
We all have our reasons for choosing one over the other based on own own health and what was comfortable for us.
No surgery is “better” than the other.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you that your decision was the wrong one.
