      Wow awesome! Stay positive that all will be well!

  2. 7 months post-op and I'm down 76lbs i don't recognize my self anymore.

  3. Well I'm a 5 months post RYN and I'm 60 lbs lighter I had the lap band for 8 years and I only lost about 50 lbs the lap band for me was awful the acid reflex at night was horrible I would have to sleep with 5 pillows so my body was never flat or else I'd throw up in my sleep it was very depressing, if I was you I would get the sleeve verse the lap band it is a wast of money and a wast of recovery time this is just my opinion everyone is different. Good luck!
  4. It's been 44 days since my surgery and today I hit 30 lbs gone forever!.

  5. Mira-lax powder was a life saver for me you put it in your water and it honestly tastes like nothing I can't even tell! I put it in my water bottle every morning I go regularly now!!!!
  6. The scale is finally moving!!!! Feeling good tomorrow is my 1st month post op:)

  10. I had to self pay but I went to Mexico to Dr.Aceves he was awesome and the hospital was great better then great! Everyone thinks its scary to go to Mexico but I had my lap band there and now my revision to GB I'm 13 days out doing very well they treat you like your their only patient it was a wonderful experience and very happy I went back. It cost me 12,500.00 to take out my band and do the GB also included 5 nights at the hospital one night hotel stay and transportation to and from San Diego air port. My PCP is doing my labs and after care here in the states... Good luck on your journey!
