@Loveltiitii

If you can give me a call 619-900-7808 when you have a free minute so I can answer any questions you have.

Here are the answers to your questions:

Yes we require a $500.00 deposit to schedule your surgery date. Once you have scheduled your surgery date by paying deposit you will receive emails from our support staff including a hospital packing list and pre-diet and instructions from our certified nutritionist Stacy Eckel. All our patients are allowed to bring one companion at no additional cost.

I think I may go in April for the surgery. I will be going for the gastric bypass whenever I go.

Im really hoping that removing my lapband will not be a problem. When switching to gastric bypass. I really want to get this surgery and I don’t want to waste money if it is not going to be completed.

Hi, I'm scheduled for revision surgery (Lapband to VSG) on April 4, 2018 in Tijuana Mexico, but I opted to have another surgeon to perform my procedure. I too will be travelling alone and wish I had a buddy. I'm very nervous, but I know this is something that HAS to be done. I wish you all the best.

I travelled alone, and was completely fine! There were a few other patients with me, and they were super friendly.

Ma’am you could not have picked a better surgeon or support team! I had my RNY done there in October and each and every staff member cares for their patients’ safety, comfort & support. They see people as people not just another dollar sign. If I had to go again I would be totally comfortable going alone [emoji4]

      Have decided on the Lap Band.  Excited, tomorrow 7/24 I have my consultation with my surgeon!  Hoping he will approve me.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
