Lap Band surgery was not a choice for me in British Columbia, I am six years beyond the upper age limit. But I’m a determined old lady and from the moment the surgeon said that he could do the surgery in Ontario, I was ready to walk there if necessary. I’m glad I didn’t have to walk and I’m very glad I had the surgery. All the staff have been wonderful, patient, supportive and prompt. The pre-surgery portion of the program is the hardest part by far. The surgery itself uncomplicated, and recovery very quick. I’ve had no issues with heartburn, vomiting or food intolerance of any kind. Six months and three days from surgery, I have lost 79 lbs. and I’m thrilled, and far, far healthier. Thanks everyone, for your part in this amazing journey.
