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.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
