Enter the Shina

So as i am recaping lets pick up shall we....I get to meet my sureon/ Doctor..Dr. Mark Shina (oh doctor doctor...yeah i just made a Thompson Twins refrence get on my level!!)
Now my doc seems to be a stright shooter a no no nonsense kind of guy. His first words were if you think the band is going to do all the work you are mistaken. This band is a tool and is only as good as the person wielding it.... Did he just say get to wield a lap band?!? I AM CONAN OF THE LAPBAND!!!!! we should get along just fine. HE has set my wait goal at 200!


  1. That band is just a tool! It is not a miracle cure at all. It is hard work even with the band! I am just sayin......LOL

  2. I agree with Kristin, I am only three weeks post op and its already a battle... stay strong and you will come out on top!

  3. As long as you know that going in to it, you'll be fine. It's not easy, but it's easier than doing it without the band!
