    Wow 87 lbs is wonderful! Congratulations! i appreciate your time. Did you consider the sleeve at all instead of lap band? I know the Dr. does all surgeries and they talked to me about the sleeve but I still think I would rather the lap band. How often do you have to go to Dr. F office for check ups or fills?

    That is great to hear! I thought he was very nice but was wondering if anyone had surgery with him so I'm happy to hear that it was a good experience. How are you feeling 6 months later? Have you had good weight loss or any complications? Really trying to do my research to make sure this is going to be the right choice for me. I'm very nervous about the stuck episodes, burping all the time or hair loss. Have you experienced any of these problems? Thanks for any information you don't mind sharing with me.

    Hair loss

    My surgery is scheduled for October and hair loss has been scary for me to think about. Has anybody's hair gotten so thin that people can notice or is something that you notice on yourself? I'm so nervous about this and stuck episodes that I'm starting to have anxiety over it. You are all an inspiration to me and I appreciate how everyone shares. Thanks!
  8. That sounds so amazing!! That is how I want to feel!! I'm scheduled for surgery Oct 7 and I feel your joy in your words. I would like to know is it easy to gain weight back? If you can gain does that mean you need a fill? I read a lot about weight gain and I'm just trying to still to figure it all out. Thanks so much!! Keep up that great work you inspire me!
  9. I am very new to this page and I am in the process of doing everything I need to do for lap band. Thank you for all your thoughts!! I'm so glad I was on this page to read what you wrote. So informative!!! Thanks!

    hair loss

    Holly, That is one of my biggest concerns, I'm in the process right now of getting approved for my surgery. I keep reading about Biotin and making sure that you get all the protein in everyday. Have you been able to get your protein? I'm sorry for you and I hope it stops for you!
