The lap band is relatively non-invasive, no cutting on the stomach or small bowel, so I can't see a reason it wouldn't be okay, unless you do have difficulty absorbing nutrients. But then, if that were the case, you wouldn't need bariatric surgery. Those of us who have proctosigmoiditis sometimes don't have the problems with weight loss that others do.

Thanks for the replies. I have had the same thoughts that Judilyn expressed - I sure don't seem to have trouble absorbing enough nutrients to gain weight easily!
