    I have a bunch of family tapes I want converted to DVD. Without sending them away, what is the best way to convert them at home? Any specific machine I can buy? Where? What is a reasonable price?

  2. Surgery. 2002 Jun;131(6):625 Lap-band failure conversion to gastric bypass Medical College of Virginia Study patients who had failed LapBand converted to a gastric bypass. 50% of LapBand have been removed. Median time to conversion after LapBand was 38 months. The LapBand is associated with a high frequency of inadequate weight loss. Conversion to gastric bypass in this subset of patients is technically challenging but results in superior weight loss in a shorter time period.
