You’re sick and tired of dieting. I get it. That’s why it’s easy to justify the cost of the ReShape Balloon™ because you think this tool will do all the work for you. You have it implanted, you’ll eat less, and over time you’ll lose all your weight. It seems like a magic pill. Who then needs 12 months of coaching with a Dietitian if a gastric balloon can do all that?
During your ReShape Gastric Balloon implantation period, it’s extremely important to take the prescribed medications from your healthcare provider. Prescribed medications will include antispasmodics, antiemetics and pain relievers which are important to help manage post-procedure symptoms such as soreness and nausea.
If you travel frequently for work or for pleasure, it is understandable that you would like your travel experience to be as easy and stress-free as possible. If you have just received your ReShape Balloons and you plan on traveling within the next months, you might be worried that the balloon could become problematic during your travels.
You may have made the decision to move forward with the ReShape® Procedure, or you may still be learning and considering. Regardless, we know its important to understand how we select our doctors especially as you consider which physician you would like to use for this weight loss balloon program.
