Preparing For Lap Band surgery -- What To Have On Hand.
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I often get hung up in the details of things, planning to the nth degree, but somehow, even after attending support groups before surgery, and following my doctor's instructions, I still did not have everything I needed in the house for right after my Lap Band® surgery. I had tried many and decided on one protein drink, had some soups and some sugar free jello, but that was about it. . . . keep reading

By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog

New 15 Year Study Proves That Gastric Band Surgery Is Effective
By: Joe Bragg
Because obesity is a chronic disease, any proposed obesity treatment should be expected to demonstrate long-term durability to be considered effective. Yet for bariatric surgery, few long-term weight loss data are available. . . . keep reading

Obesity As A Disease - One Doctor's Take
By: Dr. Yoni Freedhoff
In his June 24th, 2013 Blog post on Weighty Matters, Dr. Yoni Freedhoff comments on the American Medical Association's declaration that obesity is a disease. He makes some great points. What do you think? Here is what Dr. Freedhoff has to say: . . . keep reading

The Weight Loss Surgery Dilemma - Should I Choose LAP-BAND™ or....
By: Sandi Henderson SandisBandedLiving Blog
I promised you all round two of the meeting I just attended of the LAP-BAND™ Patient Executive Council. I find that when I sit and look at all we talked about, and all we accomplished, and all of the studies that were presented to us a few things stood out for me.... . . . keep reading


Lap Band Success - Planning For The Holidays and Winning
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
So Hanukkah started Tuesday evening. I have a large family dinner on Sunday that will include high calorie appetizers, dinner with traditional potato latkes (pancakes) and sour cream and high calorie sugary desserts and lots of wine. I am almost 5 weeks post-op and have my lowest previous banded weight within reach for the end of 2014. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - There Is No Shame In Regain
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Many of our bariatric doctors will tell us that we can "expect" a 10% regain after a couple of years. Most of us conveniently forget we ever heard, or read, those words anywhere, as we get to the point in our journey where we are at our goal weight loving our new life, and all it means to us. . . . keep reading

Thankful for a Second Chance
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
As most of you know on 10/1/14 my 10 year old band was removed and I lived 6 weeks without my band. On 11/17/14 I had a new Lap Band placed and am now on my second journey as a newbie after weight loss surgery. . . . keep reading

Back In The Ranks Of The Banded
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
On Monday 11/17/14 - 10 ½ years after I was first banded I got my new Lap Band. Along with my band Dr. Billy did a plication, and for those you who have no idea what it is, Google it since I still tired, drugged, and would definitely get something wrong in the description I give you. Next week, and in the weeks to come there will be more. . . . keep reading

My saga continues. I have been without my WLS tool since 10/1/14. I had all my tests done, all is ok and now it's time for me to schedule my revision and get back on the "bandwagon", literally as well as figuratively. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - I Decided, So Now What Happens?
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
In the soap opera called my life, my Lap Band was removed on October 1st, and I was given the option of either another Lap Band or an RNY Gastric Bypass. Although VSG is a popular surgery, it was not a consideration because my insurance would not cover it. It's been over a month now that I am living without my weight loss surgery tool, and I WANT IT BACK AGAIN! . . . keep reading
