Oh my Goodness! That's big news! What is going to happen to his patients? Is there someone set up to see us for fills and issues? I know it's such a good thing for him, but a bad thing for us! Selfish of me, huh? But it's also bad for all of those still out there who need a LapBand! I've been telling anyone and everyone about him! I'm sad!

He is referring his band patients to Dr. Matthew Metz at Parker. He will take over doing the fills and aftercare. His fills are $50.00. Guess we have all been lucky paying $25.00 huh??

Yup, we have all been very lucky! do you know if he does fills the way that Tom and Dr. K do them? My friend has a doctor who always does them with ultrasound and then has her drink the barium - he fills the band the way he wants it filled. She has a 10ml band - got it Feb - and has 7mls in it already and has lost 30% of her excess weight. Last fill, she had to have an unfill because she was too tight and throwing up with every meal.

I've heard good things about Dr. Metz, BUT I am sure he's not Dr K or Tom, so they will be truly missed!

Do we know what is happening with Tom? Will he be practicing with another physician or available at all to get fills from?

Also, will there be some kind of retirement open house or anything that Dr K's patients can attend to show our appreciation?

Well, we know Tom works for another doctor full time. He was only working for Dr K on Thursdays.

I was wondering if there would be an open house also. I'd love if we could have a get together with his LapBand patients. I wouldn't be able to do all the planning and expense, but if others were willing to help, I would be willing to be part of a team to put something together. It wouldn't have to be too elaborate. A reception or something casual, so that we could let him know how much we all appreciated him.

Absolutely! Will do that right away. If it is a surprise, do you want cards, etc sent to your attention? Also, I like Prty's suggestion about a reception and would be willing to help also.

Count me in! I work Mon-Thurs 10hr shifts, but can do a Fri, Sat, or Sun. I'd be happy to help with whatever you assign.

I got my letter in the mail today from Dr. K's office announcing his retirement, so I had to come on and say "hi" to you ladies! It is sad news for his patients, especially local ones of course, but great news for him. I wish I were local and could come to a party!

I am pretty much status quo...trying very hard to get into a regular exercise routine and not having much success. Working part-time from home in the evenings, then taking care of my toddler all day, leaves me scrambling to find time for myself. My weight is about the same, still 25-30 pounds more than I'd like it to be. I'm about five pounds heavier than I was when I got pregnant so I guess that's not too bad, but like many of you I am a food addict and terrified at the possibility of going back to where I was. I'm committed to a 5k next month but at this point it'll probably be more walking than running. It's something, I suppose.

I was recently diagnosed with eczema and it's making my life difficult in a lot of ways. I'm finishing up a three-week course of prednisone which as you no doubt know is not exactly helpful in weight loss. For that and other reasons I'm going to start eliminating foods from my diet in an effort to figure out what triggers my eczema...starting with gluten (I was already tested for celiac but I could be sensitive). So it'll be interesting to see how that impacts my weight loss as well...

Guess that's enough for now. Hope all are well! rolleyes.gif

I'm in! My schedule is different each week. If we plan ahead of time, I can work around it. I have a wedding on the 15th of October and an assigned weekend that month, but we can figure it out. Just let me know what I can do!

My care was taken over by Dr Metz when the person who maimed me..... Er, my surgeon was chased out of the state by the medical board (sorry... feeling a bit out of sorts and bitter today!!! :blink: )

Anyway, Dr Metz is a very nice guy. I had complete confidence in him (even though he looks like he is about 15). His fills are basicallly done by his P.A. Allison. She is just great!!! She is good, efficient and a really nice person. You guys will all like her. One other thing that I liked was that it was never a long wait to get in for a fill. I'm not sure if this will change, since he is taking on other doctors patients, as well as doing work with Kaiser. I am hoping that I will be assigned to him when I finally colme up on the list for bypass.

I would love to come to some kind of open house/reception. Especially if it's towards the end of October. My schedule will be much more open then. If you guys need help planning, let me know.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
