Dr. Anthony Davis is a great surgeon. He communicates with you all the info upfront and he does well at the surgery. I had not problems. He will sit down and answer your questions and concerns. He will tell you truth all the time and he is very upfront and honest with you. However he doesnt listen to second opinions of others and he sometimes disregards how you feel about your fills. He will fill you if he and only if he believes or thinks your need it. Which to say is hard to convince him at some points.

Hi, My name is Sharon. I didnt write my story when I first signed up so I suppose better late then never.
I was super thin weighing about 110lbs until my 18th year. I gained over a 100lbs in 6 months. There was no change in diet or exercise I have always been a very active person. No one could understand why that had happend. I started with my Dr. and test. At that time I had no problems with my health. No thyroid problems, no insulin problems and so on. Next was a nutrionist and a personal trainer, thousand dollars down the drain and only weight stability or weight gain. I tried multiple dr's all with the same answer that nothing was wrong. However something was wrong, i gained a substantial amount of weight in a very short amout of time. Everyone told me nothing was wrong.
After no help from any professional I tried diet after diet and diet pill after diet pill. I spent hours at the gym and miserably getting no where. I would lose 20 lbs and gain 30. I changed. With the weight the things I loved to do that made me, well me i hated. I hated shopping, i hated clothes even. I hated dancing and going swimming and going to the lake. All i could think what was everyone must be thinking. Look at that fat girl....... and I knew it was true.. I hated who i saw in the mirror.. I was fixed on this horrible thing. I looked at my reflection on windows and mirrors all the time... how fat could i possibly get.. How could this happend to me? Why is this happening to me? God please help me? I hate me! Thats what I thought every minute of everyday. I thought of nothing else, every relationship in my life suffered.
In 2005 I got diagnosed with insulin resistance started taking glucaphage and I had gone from 250 to 200 using phentromine, diet and exercise. This was temporary as soon as the phentomine stopped working I started gaining again. So i worked out harder and more often. Nothing stopped it. I got married in 2007 and by 2009 i was 265lbs and so unhappy with myself , my life and everything suffered. I gave up school and just worked and worked out. Nothing happend, the weight didnt budge and neither did my attitude for my life.
Feb 2010 a friend of mine got lapband surgery. She invited me to attend a seminar with her. I didnt think anything like that could happen for me but I still went. The seminar ended and I wanted it... my husband had gone with me and he could tell the hope I had.. I wanted THIS...
I made my first appt... a month later everything was completed and I was ready for surgery....
update dec 2010
July 2010 I found out my spouse was cheating on me and I left- this was so very hard for me to do.. but I couldnt live like that.. Everyday it was a reminder of how I wasent good enough and hurt my self esteem
sept 2010 I moved back to my home state to start my life over. Hoping that I would find some happiness, peace and get my butt in gear. No better revenge but to be me again and he missed out.......
Dec 2010- not losing the way I want but trying very hard.. I can do this... but im stuck just like i was before surgery! I feel like im stuck like this forever and no matter what it will never change. I feel like Im in circle- I workout all the time I eat right, I have a band - i dont have the weight loss--- STUCK
