David R. Martin
Dr. Martin did my band re-do after a slip. He is the most caring doctor I know. I have worked with him and his patients as a nurse and always admired him and was so thrilled when he decided to take on my aftercare. Within 1 week of my consult, he diagnosed a slip and 2 weeks later, took out my old band and rebanded me! He is amazing!

I am 39 years old (turning 40 1 day before my banding) and have struggled with my weight for many years. Not unitl I had my son (8 years ago) did I ever have a really hard time losing. It just seems darn near impossible right now. I am tall and hide weight well, but when I topped teh scale at 277 (my doctors scale said 282) I realized I needed to get going and lose weight.
I am a nurse who works with cardiac patients so when I tell them they must eat better, lose weight and the other stuff, I always feel like a hypocrit because I am obese! I felt by me losing weight, I will not only be healthier and happier myself, but can share my experience with my patients...the same ones who struggle like me to lose weight ( I have already gone through major heart surgery with my hubby last year)
I have completed all of my pre-op appointments and look forward to my banding in a few weeks. I am nervous, but I know this community will help me feel better by being a resource and vast amount of knowledge and experience, so I have no excuse but to lose.
11/2/06: 20 more days until I am banded. Have lost 20 pounds so far and need to get to 170!
11/8/06: Awaiting call back from doctor to verify I am cleared. Getting excited!!! Down 23 pounds now.
