Southern Jersey...Anybody?



Recommended Posts

Patriciann,

Please keep us informed! There are doctors south of us and north of us, but for some reason, none in our area. Weird....

This has been the most difficult 31 pounds to get off of me...grrrr.

I need a fill desperately but my insurance is changing in August and I'm waiting because Nusbaum will be back in my network in August. In the meantime, I think I'll need to lock the fridge and throw away the key. LOL!

I go to dr. Iqbal's office also. Dr. Attia is the one who does lap bands. He is a great doctor. Nice office staff. Dr. Iqbal did give me my last fill because dr. Attia was on vacation. I do think that dr. Iqbal is probably doing the lap band procedures by now. They do them at the south jersey regional medical center in vineland (right off rt 55)

Hi everyone. I am in Barnegat. I just moved here from north Jersey. My surgeons are Dr. Bertha/ABkin who were voted best in NJ. I'm looking for support and after care closer to me.

I find I'm really not doing what I need to due to the drive and I'm having troubles (see my "Sore throat post tonight). If I have a problem I try to solve it on my own rather than wait for the busy office to get around to me or drive all the way there.

So, looking for something in my area for after care.

How are you feeling Julie?

I am better now that I am filled lol finally.

Learning to eat slow and take tiny bites so I don't bring it back up.

I don't have scale (have to buy one) yet.

I know I was down 17 lbs after surgery that was 8 weeks, just past my nine weeks. My clothes are getting big. It's been the best thing I ever did for myself. I hear more and more people getting The Lapband now, so many people. Have a great weekend everyone

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
