    I've never had gerd, before or after surgery. I'm sorry if you are suffering, but I'm happy as a clam!

    Had surgery 11/21. Started at 328, 310 day of surgery currently at 286. Post op was pretty painless. I'm easily getting in all my fluids and protein. There's already a noticeable difference in my appearance. I saw a buddy of mine that i have seen in a few months last Friday to watch the Heat game and he couldn't believe it. He also told me he was proud of me for making the decision to have surgery, so that felt good coming from someone other than family. I definitely have more energy already and I'm killing my wife's honey do list. I'm not missing much in the way of food except for beer obvs, and since it's the holidays there are rib roasts everywhere, but other than that I can cope. Finally, i will have a reveal of sorts this week as I have not shaved since pre surgery so i have no idea what my face looks like under this scruff. But it feels like my double chin is now a 1.5 chin. Hope everyone else is doing well.

    Any Dec surgeries out there??

    I just got my call last week and all approvals have come through. I already met out of pocket max earlier this year due to a knee injury so my WLS Team are being amazing and found a way to get me in before end of year when my plan rolls over. So 12/30 is the date... New Years present for me. I have been working towards this for awhile but it is still such a shock that it is actually happening. Setting the date really took it out of the hypothetical and dropped it right square into reality. I wish all you December folks the best. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    work after surgery

    A friend went back after a week without issues but I went back after 3 weeks & I struggled at a desk job. My blood pressure was ridiculously low & besides all the dizziness I was exhausted. I agree with reducing your hours &/or the number of days to start & see how you go. If you have the leave available to you make use of it especially if you’re on your feet all day. Remember everyone heals differently. All the best for your surgery.

    Hi NippitKT, Dr. Jalil Illan is a great option. He is accredited by ACS, IFSO, ASMB, and SRC has accredited him as a Master Surgeon in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The hospital where he performs surgeries, Hospital BC, is also a Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery by SRC. Very few hospitals and surgeons in the US have this accreditation and even less in Mexico. Here are the links where you can verify the accreditations: ACS: https://www.facs.org/profile/56073599 IFSO: https://www.ifso.com/selim-jalil-illan-fraijo-4443/ ASMBS: https://asmbs.org/provider/jalil-illan-facs-e8YM/ SRC: http://www.surgicalreview.org/find-a-provider/specialties/ Please contact me if you have any questions.
