    Any locals?

    Hi Delaware folks! I live about 10 mi from the DE Mem Bridge. I am anxiously awaiting pre-cert so I can finally get a surgery date. Been through all the testing, 6 months of weight management visits required by my insurance. Now just need that final blessing. My Dr. is at the Hosp. Univ Penn in Phila. Dr. Wynn was on my short-list but I visited Dr. Williams practice first. This process has been so agonizing. I just want the procedure done and to move on. Been reading through your posts. Thanks for the protein shake ideas that were posted in April. I think they'll come in handy. You all sound like you are doing just terrific. Keep up the great work!

    Hey all! Thanks for welcoming me after my first post last week. I am still waiting by the phone for my final insurance pre-cert so that I can get a date set this summer. I was just reading through some post-Op dietary stuff and I was wondering...with all the high protien/low carb drink emphasis, doesn't this react the same the Atkins diet does if you stray even the least bit? I remember trying to follow Atkins in the past and the minute I would have just one teensy little cheat, I'd gain like 10 lbs! Just curious...

    Banded - May 20th!!

    Hi Elizabeth, I'm a patient of Dr. Williams too. All pre-op stuff is done, just waiting for final insurance clearance and then a surgery date. Sounds like you are doing just fine. Good luck on your journey. I hope to be joining the ranks of the banded soon. -Trish

    Hi all, here is my first post! As a Jersey Girl, I thought I check out the local board. And, yes, it is a little quiet here. I am waiting for insurance pre-cert right now. All testing done and 6 month supervised program too (although my lack of success with that was almost predictable). Looking forward to a summer banding. I hope so anyway! -Trish
