Dr. Spivak in Houston Texas



Recommended Posts

I got banded on 7/16/08 by Dr. Spivak and was wondering if there were any other Spivak banders using this site? It's nice to exchange information with all of the banders here but it would also be nice to exchange info with those who used the same doctor.

I was banded by Spivak back in November of 2005. I have not been on this site in quite some time, but I am looking around again:)

Do you go to his support group meetings and do you find them helpful?

Hey Heather, he says on his site that we should expect 50% of the desired loss in the first 18 months and I thought that is way too slow (for me it will be like 50 lbs in 77 weeks!). You are doing great. Did it take that long to lose?

AntiqueJunkie, have you been banded yet? Did you end up using Dr. Spivak?

Here I am! Yep....I am part of the SPIVAK FAN CLUB! Last fill was this last spring, and glad to say I am nowhere filled near the limit of my band AND am below goal weight now.

Bunch of us, trust me. I was banded a year and a half ago. MORE than reached HIS goal (160!!!) and more than reached MY goal (150!!!).

He gave you a goal? He didn't give me a goal weight. I love him and continue to recommend him and his staff to anyone who asks but we never sat down and plotted a course or a goal. He just told me to not think about the band, but to live my life and try to keep the calories between 800-1100 a day. If I'm eating more than that, then it's time to come back for a fill.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
