  1. I love Dr. Shayani. He is willing to answer any and all questions you have. You can email him and he responds. He has a kind and caring personality. He works out of several hospitals, so my experience will be different from yours. The insurance I had dictated a 6month diet with my primary care physician. The diet after your week post op is Protein, he wants you to eat meat, Beans, cheese, Protein Bars, and nuts only. I have had good success with it. I am down 55 lbs since my surgery may 2nd. Everyone is different, so do not expect the same. I also incorporated circuit training 2 nights and walking 4 nights (3-4 Miles).
  2. I have type 2 diabetes and have been hypothyroid for 20 yrs. I was banded may 2 this year and to date have lost 55lbs. Not everyone is the same, I can only speak for myself. I would think as long as you are on the correct dose you should be able to lose weight. I actually had to decrease my synthroid dose after surgery after my pcp checked my tsh and it was 0.
  3. I was banded in may of 2011, looking to converse with someone who had lapband surgery and needs to lose a lot of weight
