  1. Thank you! I am so happy that I made this change and I'm happy with my results. I really got my life back.
  2. Hi LorettaLynn. Sorry I haven't been very active on the forums. I had such a great experience and I have no complaints about the care I received at MBC. I went alone and I never felt uneasy or in danger. I have lost about 125lbs in my first year. I would highly recommend them. I made a slideshow to show my progress over the past year. Good luck with everything! Please let me know if you have any specific questions that you would like me to answer.
  3. @Aussie H thank you! I will def ask my surgeons office. I wonder if it would help wearing it if we waited a few months after surgery, so that we aren't as sensitive to it. I know after tummy tucks, most people wear the fajas and it seems to help shape them a little better. (I know it's a totally different ballgame though with our procedures) Thanks for your input.
  4. Thank you @Cheesehead. I wasn't sure if that was something ppl used after to control the extra skin.
  5. I am still pre-op, scheduled for May 18, but I was wondering if anyone used any waist trainers, binders or fajas after their gastric bypass. I am trying to gather everything I need now. If you did use them, how soon after surgery did you start wearing them? Thanks!
  6. Hello. I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Vivian and I reside in San Antonio. I am a long time lurker converting to a contributor now that I have a date for my gastric bypass. It will be on May 18 and I can't wait. I am going to the Mexicali Bariatric Center. I can't wait to join the loser's bench.
