ugg sizing Can anyone give me info on the Lap Band
Has anyone out there had the Lap Band procedure?? Can you give me names of doctors and prices and the recovery time?I had the lap band in March of this year. I went in the hospital on a Sat. came home on Sun. Everything went well for me. I’ve lost 66 pounds so far. I go to the doctor in Louisville every 6 weeks. I had Dr. Rodriguez. He was a real nice guy. He answered all my questions and I was scared at first but he made me feel so at ease. I’m glad I had it done. It was the best thing I ever done for my self. My blood pressure has been down ever since the surgery and they are getting ready to take me off my high blood pressure pills. I had it done at Norton Hospital and they were very friendly. I was wondering too about Insurance. Whether or not it pays for it. I am going to call my carrier to check.After 18 months of losing weight they will do the skin tuck. That is what Dr. Rodriguez told me. I’ve only had it done so far since March od this year. No, I do not regret it. Yes if you whatch what you eat you will not have any trouble. You need to know when you feel full to stop eating. It doesn’t take much to full me up and I’m never hunger. I drink a lot of liquids and that helps along with protein drinks.Just wanted to say that I have an appointment to see DR. Larson in Louisville in Oct to set up my surgery date. I have been getting my stuff together since April of this year. Now I am so close and so excited. I would be there tomorrow if I could. I am having the bypass. I know of several people that has had it done and they are doing great. The only thing I didn’t like about the lap band is all the things you can’t eat cause of erosion and slippage. Not trying to talk you out of that, it is just my opinion. By best wishes to you and anyone wanting to do it.im wanting the gastric wrote:Im waiting on a appointment with the surgen what happens next woo im nervous but excited too! anyone know anything about it?Will it be your first appointment or will it be the appointment to set up your surgery? The first time you see your dr, he will talk to you about how things will go,you will also talk to a dietian,and a nut dr. After that you will be required to take some tests and then when approved you will see the dr again to set up your appointment. It takes a while but I am ready to go.
