Jamie's Lap Band Surgery Story

Jamie's Story

Jamie, Age 51, Female

Weight Lost:

123 lbs. Pre-Op Comorbidities:

High Cholesterol


Type II Diabetes

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

High Blood Pressure

I was told by all my doctors that I was going to be dead in 5 years if I did not do something about my weight. I had Type II diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, severe depression and the list goes on. I was taking between 7 and 11 prescriptions a month. My insurance would not cover the surgery so I decided to put the entire cost on credit cards.

My logic was; I could either die with perfect credit or go in debt and take a chance on living my life again. Now I take 1 prescription a month, no diabetes, no high blood pressure, no high cholesterol and I get up every day enjoying life thanks to LAP-BAND® and my doctor.
