Hello to All!
I am a 32 year old proud parent of on 8 year old girl and I have a great (on most days) husband that I have been married to for 14 years. I have quite the interesting lap band story. So read on. I had my surgery back in Sept. 05 in Mexico by the BeLiteWeight group. I had a really hard and expensive time finding a local person to do my fill. I use Dr Michael Paluzzi in Seneca (he is great). I got my first fill the end of that year and then at the next fill it was horrible......I could only sip water for a week and I thought I was dying. I never thought heartburn could kill you until then. At that time some was taken out to stop the refluxing and it basically left me with an empty band.
Then started the worst year of my life. My husband ended up in the hospital in Dec 06 and has been in and out of the hospital and work until March 08. With all that was going on I was financially unable to pay for my previous visits or any new ones. Thankfully all is going well now and we all hope it continues to do so.
Finally a fill....Yes finally on April 28, 2008, I have gotten a fill. The bad part is I actually found out how much weight I had gained since my unfill. Very depressing. I knew I had gained, but WOW! But....now I am pepping myself up for a wonderful weight loss journey starting NOW!
