3rd time lucky?

It's been a long 24 hours.  I have had so many supportive messages from friends - thank you so much xo

I've also had a lot of people discussing options with me such as the sleeve and gastric bypass.  I'm not too keen on having either of these surgeries. Both of them have their pros and cons but for me, they are both terribly dangerous given my weight.  I don't want to die on a table.  I want to be around for my kids  I am one of the unlucky ones who have had everything that could possibly go wrong with their band.  Slippage is quite uncommon, a flipped port is quite uncommon but then again, I often tend to be a shit magnet!

So, I'm booked in to have surgery on Tuesday.  Hopefully this will be the last time that I go under the knife because of any problems with my band.  If I have any more problems, I'll really have to evaluate what I plan on doing at that point in time but I am HOPING for smooth sailing ahead.
