Well, my story isn't a new one...I got the lapband in 2008 and lost 48 pounds in the first 10 months. I got too much of a fill and long story short, band was never the same. I could never get good restriction after that, either too tight or too loose. After 10 fills and 3 unfills and a 30 pound regain, I decided to revise to the sleeve. It took over two months to find the money for revision, but it was found and I was revised in one surgery on 03/24/11 at Obesity Control Center (OCC) with Dr. Ariel Ortiz in Tijuana, Mexico. I was extremely happy with my trip to OCC, great staff and aftercare so, if you are looking to get VSG in Mexico, email me and I would be happy to share my experience with you!
I really don't know what to expect on this new journey...I just want to be a "normal" size and healthy. Let's face it, I want to shop in a regular store and fit comfortably in an airline seat...I want to try and battle with my food demons and win sometimes! Good Luck to all who are on this journey with me, it should be an interesting ride to say the least! :)
