  1. Thank you! Feel good... most importantly, healthy
  2. Thanks! It takes work, like all the options available to us. But honestly, wasn’t terrible. Just became the ‘model patient’ and did as instructed.

  6. Hi all Been awhile for me... but wanted to post an article recently written in my band ‘experience’. Very pleased.... honestly, never an issue and pretty simple overall. If I can do it, you can too. Give it a thought. If I can help, let me know! http://www.townvibe.com/Ridgefield/September-October-2018/Worth-the-Weight/ john

    Can’t take this anymore

    Dr Fielding - and that practice - are the best!
  8. Thank you for your well wishes! I had originally gone for eyes - the extra skin made my lids droopy and I always looked tired. Dr said both could be done at the same time. Btw. Of course, insurance didn’t cover it, I didn’t even ask Lucky enough to be able to private pay. I asked doc if he could do anything on price since I was doing eyes and neck, and he did eyes for half price. Doesn’t hurt to ask!

    Lap Band Removal or NOT???

    You’re in Ny. Do yourself a favor and see Dr George Fielding at NYU. The best! If anyone can help you, it’s him. Trust me

    Can’t take this anymore

    All I can say is be patient. It took me numerous fills, and a few unfills, to get it right. Rely on your doc. It’ll work. It hasn’t been a year yet. Hang in there

    I use the Men’s gummi multi vitamins. And gummi fiber ones Some of the others tasted horrendous
  12. So, been awhile since I’ve been on... happy to report everything is good (3 1/2 years out) Can’t believe I actually did it.... but last week had my eyes fixed up (excess skin on eyelids and bags under eyes) and extra skin on my neck removed. Sorry, can’t remmeber official procedure names.... 3 hour surgery, all good.... never took a pain pill How long should I expect to look normal? Well, like I didn’t have surgery. Ha i have little swelling, stictches out Wednesday which is cool. But the incision on my neck is pretty obvious right now Thanks!

    Random Bariatric Thought of the Day.

    My surgeon had Lapland close to 20 years ago, as did his PA. Very helpful - and inspiring!

    Bad week on diet.

    It totally varies. I just had a bit taken out. I know I didn't feel anything until about four months out from surgery. The surgeon said I would - and I did. Be patient....
  15. You look amazing! All in one procedure?
