    Anyone from South Texas?

    Good to see some familiar town names out there. I am an hour south of Houston. I work in Houston though. Dr. Spivak will also being doing my surgery. I just can't wait. I am so excited about it. I was really nervous the other night... wondering if insurance wasn't going to cover it (even though they have covered everyone else here) Anyways... I ate a whole large thin crust cheese pizza from Pizza Hut. I didn't even get sick from eating that either. I was so embarassed when I told my husband what I had done. I told him that after the band there was no way I could consume that much again!!! Keep in touch!

    Dr. Spivak in Houston?

    I have met with him and I do like him, but you know how it is with surgery... I just am trying to find something bad too. I have read some posts about ports breaking, turning and so on... That somewhat worries me. Dr. Spivak has already approved me to have surgery, just waiting on insurance, which shouldn't be much longer.

    Fill Doctors in Houston Area

    Sorry I don't have any suggestions. I do know that Dr. Spivak's office will work with you if you are a self pay. I don't know much about surgery in Mexico, but I personally wouldn't have it done there if it costs $15,000 here and is less than $8000 there??? But there may be other people that have had great experience with that.
  5. Hey flowerpower... I am glad to see someone mention Dr. Spivak's name. I am going through the paperwork right now to hopefully be banded before the end of the year. I have great insurance so I am not expecting a delay. I have only met the Dr. once and he seems to be a great Dr. At the seminar he wasn't pushing anything, just informing us.
