Anyone from South Texas?



Recommended Posts

I have just been approved for my Band and will be setting up a surgery date for the near future.

Just wondering if there are a lot of people that post on here from Texas.

It would be nice to have someone to support and be supported by when I start having a lot of questions about what is going on.

Hey there. From what I've read, there are quite a few Texans around here. I'm in Little Elm which is about 35 miles north of Dallas. Congratulations on getting approved. I'm scheduled for November 8th.

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!

I am having it done at Park Plaza Hospital down at the Medical Center as far as I know. Not sure on a date yet.

Need to change this ticker... I have gained some back... Trying to be honest about this thing...

I am closer to 330 right now. I haven't been doing so great with the dieting, guess i am trying to get in as much as I can before it's time! (I know that sounds horrible, but I LOVE food)

JohnDeereGal..........I think that we would all go thru that......I know my mind would be saying......."eat what you can!" But maybe that is what is wrong...........my mind always says that....that is why I am at the weight I am.

Melanie.......Congrats on your banding date! You will do great! Dr. Spivak is so very sweet!

That is definitely why I am overweight... always eating as much as I can... About a year ago I got down to 299 and I was flippin out... I was so excited!!! I couldn't remeber the last time I was "2-something". Then I gained about 25 back and then I got pregnant. That is when I went form 325 to 365. I lost all the weight I gained from having Madison, but I am ready to get down to 199!!! Just to feel the feel of weighing one hundred and something and not three hundred and something.

I am from South Texas - from the Coastal Bend area. Orange Grove is pretty much midway between Mathis and Alice and Robstown.

My surgery will be next Tuesday, the 8th.

Is there anyone else here from SOUTH Texas ???? South of San Antonio? Corpus Christi? The Valley??

All the WLS docs down south were run out by this area's huge insurance settlements, so you have to go to SA or Houston to find a doctor unless you go South of the Border.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
