I'm a few hours away, had mine last week....in Bakersfield. I haven't had heartburn, I actually haven't had any since surgery and I'm loving it, that was a major concern for me going in.

I'm glad you liked him. He did my lapband on 07 and never believed me when I told him it slipped 3 days later. He removed my gall bladder a few months ago and FINALLY confirmed that it had slipped.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

        Vitamin patches work wonderful. They are some what expensive but the only thing I can use
