After years and years of fighting my weight (pretty much my whole life), I decided to get a lapband. I thought about it for over a year, found out my insurance wouldn't cover it, and then discovered the OCC (Obesity Control Center) in Tijuana, Mexico. Since I was self-pay, it was the only affordable option for me. I couldn't be happier with the whole set up down there, but that's for another post.
I'm now about six weeks out, with no restriction. I lost a total of 20 pounds during my pre and post-op phases, and have gained five of those pounds back. :(
I get my first fill on Monday--I'm going back to OCC for this one, although for future fills, I'll probably stay local and get them without fluoroscopy.
More to come...
