Loving my Lap Band; Paid $10, 000.00 Houston, Texas. Dr. Reilly

I am at 5 weeks post surgery, loving it so far! 31 days of liquid diet, no vomiting or nausea whatsoever! I have never been hungry at all. I paid cash, insurance wouldn't help at all, but I will not pay for any after care for a full year. Surgeon was great, staff was awesome, recovery very quick, stayed off work only a week. Only problem I had was after my 1st adjustment, two days later, I had difficulty in swallowing, I went back to Dr. & they moved me back to liquids for 2 days & I was good again. I'm very happy with it so far, losing & not hungry. Good luck to all of you & congratulations! I'm pushing 30 pounds lost so far! I do recommend!

Shelly, I am thinking about getting the lap band and I am in Pasadena. Can you give me any info on your expereince. I am a little scared of the throwing up part and food getting stuck.

Doing very well thanks. My company changed insurance my 3rd month into it, I then got discouraged, then still wanted it so badly I went on with it, so I paid cash but all aftercare for 1st year included so, I wish you the best of luck. Where are you doing the surgery? When are you trying to get it?
