From what I've heard Dr. Mckeen is the only doctor in Utah that will do fills on patients who had their surgeries in Mexico.

fielding eh? - up there by logan - ever head over to bear lake? where in the UK? don't be nervous, lapband was my last option but it's been the best thing - I'm 2 months into it and its the best I've felt in at least 7-8 years - energy level is going up - weight is coming down - I'm into a whole cache of clothes I forgot about - hopefully I'll be able to wear all the concert t-shirts I've been buying for years before the year is out. good luck to you.

being a big beatles fan I've always wanted to go to england - that is my ancestry too - one of the reasons to drop some weight so that it will be easier to travel without having to bring a shoehorn or grease to wedge my butt into an airplane seat - don't worry about the weight coming off it will - sometimes slower than others but it will - you just have to work with it - it's a tool - I find that when I don't walk or get on my bike my weight loss slows down no matter what I'm eating - but I haven't been filled yet either - tuesday 1st fill - we'll see how it goes - good luck

      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.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
