Are there any lap band doctors in the dfw area that give fills without having to do a barium swallow? My surgeon was great, but has retired. I'm self pay & it was always my choice to do the barium swallow. It was also less expensive without it. It's less about the cost & more about the actual liquid though. I did it once & threw it right back up. I know I need a fill now. I've actually put it off a little. I just need a doctor that will just do the fill. I'll stay there and make sure I can keep down water, that's not a problem... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
