Would love to hear from all who have had the Stomaphy.....  Special diet?  Price?  Amount you needed to lose?  .... I'm so excited to finally have something simple as a revision option!  I was not looking forward to another open to take out more of my intestine!

I am currently looking into the StomaphyX also.  There is a doctor in Irvine, CA (I'm in San Diego, CA) which is only like 1 hour away.  I DONT HAVE TO TRAVEL!  I have HMO insurance and that surgeon is an in network.  I have not gone yet.  So I don't know the price.  I am very excited too!

There is a surgeon in College Station TX that is going to be doing them.  He is a bariatric surgeon and also does bypass and Lapbands.  What an exciting option for those that so desperately need and want to be successful.  PM me and I will be glad to get you his onformation.

His name is Dr. Mason and he's a physician at St. Joseph Regional Health Center in Bryan.  He performs Gastric Bypass and lap band surgeries.  He now lists Stomaphyx as a surgery revision for GBPS as well.

I had the surgery by Dr. Shawn Garber in NY about a week ago and lost 9 pounds already and feel like soon after the gastric bypass when I needed to remind myself to eat.  I am on a full liquid diet for a couple of weeks.  My surgeon charges $8800 for the entire procedure.

Wow!  Congrats on your loss!  I sooooooooo want to be a LOSER again too!!!!  ....  I found out that Dr. Eric Schlesinger  (Phoenix) will be charging in that same ballpark.  He's running a "New Procedure Special"  with great pricing.  ....  I'm on the list!  Woooooo Hoooooo! Joyce in az
