I live in MD, a teeny bit NW of DC. I had my surgery on 4/2/13. Would love to get to know some other locals who are going through this process!

I live in Anne Arundel County, MD about 20 miles from DC. I am a patient of Dr. Paul Lin at George Washington University Hospital. He is the chief of surgery and has a lot of experience with bariatric surgery revisions . I am scheduled for a conversion from a band to RNY on May 23rd. I'm just waiting for final approval from my insurance company. Dr. Lin spoke with the medical reviewer from my insurance company last week and he is confident that I will be approved. I had my band placed in 2010 by Dr. David von Rueden at St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore.

I i live in montgomery county , going to Sibley Hospital with Dr Long for surgery on 5 - 6 -2013

Dr. Long did my band to bypass conversion. He's awesome, as is Brian Wallace (nurse practitioner). I had a really positive experience at Sibley - the nurses were very helpful and very patient, very on top of things. Hope to see you at one of the support group meetings! I went to my first one this past Thursday.

Tiggy, dr long took out my band in 2010 after complications I wasn't ready for a revision but now it's time for the bypass , I regret not having it then but I wasn't ready. I'm ready now and will definitely be at the support group meetings. I'm going to need all the help I can get. : )

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
