Monica I don't know about having it done with fibro but one of my DILs had gastric bypass a year and a half ago and has lost 163 lbs and is like a new person. She did not qualify for the lap band. She had to go through a program before her ins would pay for it. I guess to prove she couldn't lose it on her own. I would go for the lap band if you can it is much safer and less invasive.
By all means make sure the surgical team knows about fibro. Tyno did you have the strength to raise an arm to smack her???
I have not had to have surgery since getting fibro.
luv and hugs
