I just went to my doctor and asked if I could be referred . She didn’t try to lecture me or anything , just asked me if I realised the appointments would be in London , and referred me .

m.sss, No , London in England ! Sorry , I didn’t realise there was another London !

I was approved for WLS in 2005 and backed out 3 week from surgery date. I was scared and heard a lot of negative things. My weight has yo yoed since. I have asthma, high BP, sleep apnea, had knee surgery and constant back pain. I was also borderline diabetic. The surgeon who performed my gall bladder removal in Nov. 2018 suggested I reconsider WLS again. I attended his seminar and met with my PCP who pushed the Paleo diet to all of her patients. I tried it and was unsuccessful, she said she supported my decision and the rest of the process was easy. I have a great team, my PCP, surgeon and nutritionist were all helpful and supportive of my surgery.

And may YOU make Goal and live life better, thinner and with less of you pushing down on your joints, with diminished pain. Don't have the BP but have a recently discovered Thoracic Aorta Aneurysm, stable but still lurking somewhere in my chest, otherwise we are SoulSisters in ailments, but my Testimony-- the pain drops down to more manageble, you move better if still a turtle🐢 pace and most iMPORTANT- you do feel better and face Life with new vigor. We'll never be unscarred but those are our Battle Ribbons, no matter what Life threw at Us, We Still Won This War! And remember always what HOPE stands for
HOLD
ON
PAIN
ENDS.
Much love from me in Central Ohio, your Bari--Bud Frustr8📍😛📍

I brought it up once and my PCP said “ sure... I’m ok with it” and then moved on to the pre surgery process/seminar.

      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:

      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.
