On June 4, 2012 I made a life changing decision to have Lap Band surgery. I was 36 years old having back pain, knee pain and feeling fatigued all the time One year after my surgery I have lost 132 pounds and no longer have back pain, knee pain, or feel fatigued. This was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am a healthier and happier woman with my whole life ahead of me now. I can do so many things now that before my size kept me from doing.
