    Hi. My doc. has raised the idea that i consider lapband surgery (keyhole surgery) to help me lose some of the weight I have gained throughout my life.... causes too complex to go into. Has any one had this experience? surgery? or know any good sites for more info? All replies appreciated.....

    My SIL had this surgery done and is recovering quite well although she doesn't have FM. Her husband is also going to have the surgery done and he has quite a few pain issues including FM and some other leg/hip problems. He will be having this surgery so that he can lose enough weight to have a hip replacement. His doctor thinks this will help him greatly. I hear the lapband surgery is much better than the bipass so if your doctor is recommending it then I would definitely research it and consider it.
