Do you know how many anchors he put in?
I will tell you like I told someone else who contacted me about the procedure.......There is no magic cure. I thought about this procedure long before I had it done. I got to the point that i was tired of being overweight, heavy, no energy. I also knew that I wanted the least risky procedure possible. I didnt feel I was big enough for the more drastic surgerys and I wasn't sure about the band because I knew someone who had it and she vomited all the time. You have to be "mind ready" and have to want to suceed. I do cook at home for the family (mostly spagetti and rice and gravies), but I don't eat it. When we go out to eat we mostly eat at places that I can make good choices. It is a lifestyle change. Once you start seeing that weight come off, it motivates you so much. I went from a size 22/24 to a 14/16 depending on brand. I could have never done it on my own. Went to the store last weekend and went in the ladies to try XL shirt, too big. Got disappointed for a moment because I never thought could fit Large. I sure did!!! Don't let everyone get you down. If you read the boards often people got pros and cons to say about all the surgeries. Some work well for some and not others. You have to want it! I am not sure about how many anchors. Did you meet with Dr. Lavin yet?

This procedure was an absolute waste of my money. I only lost weight during the liquid stage. Which is going to happen with or with out weight loss surgery. Sometimes I wonder if they even did a procedure on me. I am sure I have no recourse with them since I agreed to an "experimental" procedure.
It is very discouraging:(
