  1. 5.5 months out

    It's been five and a half months from surgery and am ONE pound away from my original goal weight of losing 95 pounds.

  5. Follow-up appointments after surgery.

    Once my surgery is over and I have went back home to rural Kansas, will I be expected to fly back to San Diego for a follow-up appointment, or can it be done by telehealth...or even a local provider? What do most people do after a Lap-Band to Sleeve revision surgery?
