Lisa's Gastric Band Diary

Welcome to my gastric band diary!

We're documenting Lisa's journey through her gastric band surgery. For the first time in Healthier Weight history we'll be recording her surgical procedure live, including her thoughts prior to the operation and immediately after once back on her feet. 

We've always been up front and honest when we meet our prospective patients and this in depth account from Lisa will help others to make an informed decision. We thank Lisa for letting us tell her story.
