Lap Band Surgeons in Fort Lauderdale

Feb 14, 2008 - 1 comments

Has anyone used a surgeon in Ft. Lauderdale for lap bansd surgery that they really liked ,or one that they don't recommend.  How about Cleveland Clinic or Memorial Hospital?

The side effects sound terrible.  Is it worth it?

I am 59 (yesterday was my birthday) and I know I need to lose about 70 pounds. I hope I qualify for the surgery because of diabetes and joint problems, bur reading about some of the side effects scare me. Are these problems (vomiting, slippage, inability to absorb food) typical?  Would you do it again if you knew what was ahead for you?  Are you ever able to eat regular food?
