Hi, I had my DS surgery on December 13th, 2018. It was performed by Dr Jon Bruce, MD of WakeMed Bariatric Specialists Of NC In Cary, NC. I had lost 20 lbs prior to surgery and have lost 50lbs since surgery. Dr Bruce is the best! While in there doing my surgery, he spotted something on my liver, took a biopsy, sent it off and it came back stage 4 cirrhosis of the liver! If not for him, I would have never known it. I have to go see a liver specialist next month for options. Please pray for me! Thanks in advance!

Glad your experiences with Dr Bruce went well. My wife has a totally different experience with that crook. He didnt explain squat to my wife on what the requirements were all along for the total year she went through his half ass program. WHEN IT CAME TIME TO HAVE THE SURGERY THE INSURANCE COMPANY DIDNT QUALIFY HER FOR THE SURGERY!!! I blame it 100% on his practice and wasted tons of money for visits to him. Glad you had better resuts!!

I I am doing good. Definitely still learning. I find I can tolerate some foods sometime nd then the next day...they make me sick. However, overall pretty good.

I can imagine that is frustrating to experience. I am good feeling a little low energy this afternoon while on my pre-op diet, but only two more days after today of this diet and 3 days till surgery.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from: 
      JOINED
      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
