Hi Goober; I am going to PM you with my personal details... ie. phone, real name etc....

Then perhaps we can tee up a meeting in Barrie or thereabouts for a "coffee or SKIM MILK LATTE"

sound good?

I'll let you know next time I'm headed up your way! I'm not up there too often but one butter tart every six months isn't the end of the world. It would be a bad thing though, if I lived in Barrie... temptation would call, leave a message and then try me on my cell, but would also email me just to make sure I'm checking my messages.

Does it count if you eat only the inside of the butter tart? I'm really not that keen on pastry and I figure not eating the pastry is a calorie neutralizer. Sort of akin to ordering a diet coke with your 3000 calorie cheesecake.

Wow, you went all the way to S.Korea????

Where are you going to get your after care???

I was banded by SLIMBAND ( aka Toronto LapBand Centre) in July 07.

I paid $16k self pay. THey do all my followups for life. Great surgeon.

I live in South Korea. I have lived here for over 2 years. I never thought I could get the surgery as it is expensive and I have a low BMI to start with but found a great doctor here in Korea and was able to work out a payment plan and paid way less then what I would in Canada.

We talked about what I would do when I go back to Canada but he said he has many patients who are foreigners who go back to the states or Canada no problem and find places for their fills etc. I am planning ahead and looking into finding a fill center now. Before I go back my doctor will help me as well looking for a fill center if I dont find one myself.

Hi Peaches and everyone!

I'm looking to re-affirm my commitment to losing again! I have indulged a wee bit and need to re-focuss once again.

Cheers!

Hi, I live in Collingwood, and would be interested in getting together for support. I was banded May 08 at the SWLC by Dr. Coburn.

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
