After having the lap band for 7 years and vomiting all the time coughing at night decided to tell my doctor about it he then proceeded to have the restriction released and in 4 months i gained 40 pounds decided then to have the gastric sleeve done which my father and sister had done last year and lost so much weight but couldn't have it done in US since my BMI wasn't high enough, I started looking for different options until I found Dr Almanza on the internet, had surgery done in March the Doctor was only able to removed 50% instead of 80% of my stomach since I had the lap band for 7 years and my stomach was very irritated I've only lost 20 pounds but I'm not gaining, I'm a bit frustrated since I wanted to loose 50 pounds but I think that I'll get there..
