Welcome Florida Sleevers



Recommended Posts

I had my Lap-Band converted to a Sleeve 9 days ago and am very glad I made that decision. My stomach had prolapsed with the Band and I had regained over 70 pounds. I am glad to get back to losing weight using the Sleeve as my best tool!

This thread has been a bit in active. However I thought i would jump on.. I just received the go ahead from m Dr today to start the Counseling/Program etc to have WLS surgery. I am leaning towards the VGS which is how I found this form.

I live in Orange Park, just moved here in January. My husband is in the Navy & I will have my procedure done by Military Doctors, I am guess at NAS JAX. Husband supports me 100% and I am looking towards a better, happier, fitter life with my children.. (girl ages 12 & 14)

Hi, my name is Michelle and I am from Jacksonville. I don't have a surgery date but we are hoping for some time in November. I have my first appointment with the surgeon (Dr. Steven Webb) next Tuesday.

If anybody else out there has used Dr.Webb, please let me know because I have a few questions and I would like to get as much information as possible about Dr. Webb and Novus Center and the way they do things over there.

Thanks!

Michelle

Hi Michelle,

Sorry I'm just seeing this. I was sleeved by Dr. Webb on September 20th and could not be more pleased. I guess you've met him by now, so you already have an opinion, but I've been happy with Dr. Webb and Novus Both. I'd be happy to answer any questions I can.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
