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. : )

      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.

      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".
