  1. accident and the band

  2. PRP

    I am heading to the OCC in Feb to get my first PRP treatment. Anyone having/had this done yet?
  3. Sorry, no more posts from Lisa.

    well said. Christmas wishes to all
  4. Is the OCC & Dr. Ortiz the real deal?

    Morning, I was banded in 8/10 and it was the best decision of my life. I was self pay and did extensive research to ensure I was making the right decision on where I went. I took a friend who had had Gastric ByPass here in Washington state. WITHOUT A DOUBT, this was the place to go. My traveling partner could not believe the superior treatment I was receiving versus what she received in the U.S. Her father, a man in his late 60's made the decision to go down and have the lap band in 8/12 and he also feels he could not of found a more professional, caring medical team. I have also gone back for some cosmetic procedures with Dr So and once again was treated with wonderfully. I cannot answer any questions about the sleeve but you do not need to worry about the team that will be working with you. I say with it feels you are part of the team not just the body they are working on. Hope that helps some
  5. Anyone have a good fill cneter in this area?
  6. Stretched pouch.

    How is it going? I put myself on the pre op diet for a couple of weeks before going down to TJ. Hopefull that will help.
  7. major congratulations and welcome to your new journey/life. I am two years out and have never regretted a minute of it. A dear friend's dad went down last month and he echoes yours, mine and all others great rants about the OCC. When they were down in TJ they also found( courtesy of the OCC) the White Smile Center, and were as impressed with them as they were with the OCC. I am going down in Sept for a checkup, fill, filler, and dental work. Can't wait.
  8. Stretched pouch.

    so sorry to hear that, I am afraid I may have done the same thing. I am going next month to get checked.
  9. Traveling alone, I beleive (at least in 2010), the OCC gives you the option of staying at the clinic the night after surgery if you are concerned. Having said that, although I had a companion with me, I was up and ready to go back to the hotel by 2 p.m. that day and then walked about 2 miles once I got back to the hotel.
  10. Congratulations on your success thus far. Sounds like you are doing awesome.
  11. Post Op Diet

    don't be scared, you will be awesome and so happy with your decision. Happy first day of the rest of your life.
  12. Post Op Diet

    Just a word of encouragement, please what ever you do, follow the diet guidelines as far as the time in each stage. I have seen numerous acquaintances get the band from American (local) drs and not be given a post diet and be on solid foods almost immediately and then go for fills within 3 weeks of surgery. According to the post op diet from the OCC, you are still in transition to solid food at that time.
  13. Hopefully someone can assist. I have lost the information on a fill center that I was interested in. If you know the name of any fill centers in Las Vegas, please post or send me an IM Thanks Roxanne
  14. What have ~you~ heard?

    the part I don't understand is how overweight friends no longer want to associate with you. I know it has more to do with them than me but at this point in life, I did not think I would need to go out and find a whole new circle of friends
