First visit with the new Dr.

Well I went to my appointment with the new dr. The office was nicer in person than they were on the phone so that was a good thing. Completed all of the health history stuff and the dr came in. He was pretty nice, but in ways I felt him to be thorough. He listened to what I had to say and he told me that he wanted me to have an upper gi before he did too much with my band just to make sure that everything is just right. I go for that this week. He did give me a 1cc fill although I am not feeling much difference.

He also is going to do a full lab workup which I haven't had done at my old practice testing for all vitamin deficiencies too. This makes me happy as I am still losing a lot of hair 15 months after surgery. This fact is another reason that I had so much fill taken out in July. I was tired of losing so much hair! Unfortunately that didn't help and I still fill the drain with hair at every shower. Maybe the labs will indicate something.

I go back in a month, Which is longer than I really want to wait, but I will go with it! BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

sounds like you're now on the right track and in good hands.
I just had my one year post-op complete physical and was amazed at how much better everything is after losing 113lbs and embracing intense exercise!
Good luck and we sure are gonna miss you in Chicago!

I am glad you went, and that you feel good about the doctor. That relationship is very important. Hope everything turns out well and you are able to get some restriction.

You've probably already heard this before but are you taking Biotin? IF not, it really helps with hair loss. I swear by it and take it faithfully every day. It's available OTC and it's pretty cheap!

I am so glad it went well for you - sounds like you're back on track!!

I'm not sure if I'm the only one here, maybe it's my computer.. Your ticker covers the words in the first paragraph of your posts.. Like I said, maybe just my computer... Has anyone else said anything??

(((huggggssss))) to YOU! I missed YOU!

Did you ask the doctor if there was something he could suggest for you to take or do regarding the hair loss? My hair dresser suggested that I massage my scalp by brushing 100 strokes every day or just massage your scalp with your hands every day - my hair was falling out terribly also but it has gotten better since I started going this! Its worth the try!
