Making my final decision
I originally wanted to get the sleeve gastrectomy but was told my insurance wouldn't cover because it is still considered "experimental" so the next options were the Gastric Bypass or the Lap Band.  I want the one that will give me the biggest results as far as weightloss.  I am a 37 year old female, native american, type 2 diabetic, 5'2  280 lbs.  I have had a full hysterectomy so I am taking estradiol because I am in surgical menopause.

Which of the two surgeries I listed would be the best for me?  Where can I get some really good information on the negative and positive of these two surgeries?

Thank you!

Given history of T2DM would opt for gastric bypass
Will cure DM very quickly - better than band
