Our expert says:
I see no reason as to why there are any contra-indications to having lap-band surgery before embarking on fertility treatment. Obesity has been often associated with decreasing fertility potential and treating the obesity would more likely improve fertility treatment. So as a general rule there should be no impact of lap-band/weight loss surgery on IVF or on a laparoscopy that needs to be performed for removal of endometriosis before IVF begins.
