Central Texas



Recommended Posts

I am going to get my surgery done in Mexico on June 7th. Does anyone know who will do fills in the Central Texas area. If not, Dallas or Houston area doctors would be helpful too.

Thanks.

Hi!

I'm also getting my Lband in Mexico on June 7th! Who is your doctor? Dr. Roberto Rumbaut is doing mine in Monterrey.

Where do you live? Do you have aftercare lined up? I found a dr in Richardson and in Houston who will do filld but I am nervous about any complications.

I live in San Antonio. I have been told that Dr. Rumbaut has an associate now in San Antonio who will do any aftercare.

Yes, I'm a little nervous, too, but I just keep coming to this board and read all the wonderful things that are going to be taking place afterwards. So, while I'm nervous, I'm also excited and waiting to get it over with.

My husband is going with me.

I go to Gerald Garwood in College Station. He is great. He is not a surgeon, But was trained to do fills, and assists Dr Benavides.

hi there...just wanted to let ya'll know to be very careful when selecting aftercare physicians who were not involved in your surgery. i know that dr garwood and dr benavides remind us quite often that it's getting more difficult for pt's who have the surgery in Mexico to get quality aftercare because the physicians don't want to get involved with any possible complications that may arise due to "cheap fixes"....just make sure that ya'll find ones who are very reputable...good luck all

I AM FREAKING OUT. Are you?

I am going to Dr. Oritz in Tijuana.

I could really use a fellow Mexico lapband friend today.

Can you tell me which dr in Richardson does this?

I'm in Waco tooooooooo!!!!!!

All the Dr. I have contacted so far will not see me because I was banded in Mexico. So I will be going back to Monterrey in the next couple of weeks. I need a fill real bad, I dont even have restriction in the morning any more. I wish there was a fill Dr. in Waco.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
