    Anyone still here?

    This last year i ended up with acid reflux and meds were not controlling it . I ended up w ulcers in my stomach and throat from the reflux so we emptied my band and still had reflux so the only thing to do was remove it . I dont qualify for another WLS as my BMI is to low so im going to Mexico for the sleeve in November . I know i need a tool or i will gain all my weight back and i worked to hard to get it off

    "Worst slip I've ever seen" - Dr.

    I was banded in 2006 had my band removed last month due to the last year having horrible acid reflux that caused ulcers in my throat and stomach i went for my check up and have gained 2 pounds which isn't to bad so I'm looking into weight watchers to see how I do as I know I need a tool so if I can't keep weight off ill look at getting sleeved . I was devastated losing my band. I also have a few friends who have had their bands slip its not uncommon
  15. I had my band removed last month having been banded 10 years losing 120 lbs and I feel the same as you I research the sleeve then think I can do this then I'm back to sleeve right now I'm looking at weight watchers as i need to wait 3 months after band removal before sleeve and ill see how i do if i need a tool i will get the sleeve:) but i am scared to death

    Go Light Bariatrics

    I had my lap band removed last month exploring doctors to do possible sleeve . A nurse @ my doctors office today for my band removal check up had told me you should have your gallbladder removed during your sleeve or you will end up with problems so I'm curious as this is the first I've ever heard of it
  17. How much does he charge for a arm lift? I have a lot of work that needs to be done Im curious what i need to put away to have it done
  18. I didn't see any packages on her on her web page . Does she discuss them when you discuss what you want

  23. Had my band removed yesterday because of some issues I was banded 10 years . I'm considering the sleeve my doctor wants me to heal 3 months before i do that and ill have to self pay in Mexico as my insurance won't cover it my BMI is to low and I'm not considered obese anymore. stressed and trying to figure out whats best for me some of my family keeps telling me you can do it on your own without surgery so frustrated and sad right now
  24. My daughter had the sleeve done in Mexico and her doctor told her she should get the cocktail and he does them for himself quite often.
