    Hey Kari!
    I saw your videos and feel like we have many similarities. Please check out mine for more info on my background. My channel is MaryRevised.

    So, regarding your question... Let's see... after two failed lapbands, I believe that for me, the lapband can't be filled enough to provide effective restriction without causing the negative side effects of throwing up and heartburn. Also, it seems that a lot of others have had problems long term. The four other banders that know (family and friends) have all gone from band to sleeve and been extremely happy.
    I know everyone's experience is different but I actually wish I had gone to the sleeve from the beginning but it wasn't offered yet. Lol.
    So I guess that's about it. Also, since my insurance from my husbands work is covering it, I'm in! You never know if he might change jobs and I wouldn't have this awesome coverage. My job doesn't even have dental or eye care!

    I know I need help with managing my weight and that I still have all the obesity related risks that were there before my first band.

    So that's about it, in a nutshell. I want and need to eat less, and I need a tool that will be able to help long term.

    Talk to ya laters,
    MaryRevised
