Paula Bee Posted April 25, 2008 Report Share Posted April 25, 2008 I have a friend that was scheduled to have lapband surgery on May 9th. She has great insurance, so she is having it done in her home city. She has had to go to all the meetings required by that dr. and last night she attended the one with the dieticion and one of the doctor's assistants. Today she went for her appointment with her surgeon, and decided to change to the VGB surgery. She said it involved some stitches in the stomach and then a mesh ring that didn't require fills. I am aghast, but I am not really sure what vgb is... It cannot be as safe as the lapband. She is so happy for her upcoming procedure that I don't want to discourage her... she has 165 pounds to lose. Anyone know what to do? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
