    Visit With Nut At 5 Weeks

    Sorry forgot to add the link to the book....http://www.amazon.com/Recipes-Weight-Loss-Surgery-Revised-ebook/dp/B006GO6F9O
  4. I visited with my nut today Margaret Furtado.....I can't say enough great things about her. But I got to view her latest book out of recipes for weight loss and wow I love it. I wish that I would have had this 5 weeks ago but hey I just ordered it on Amazon and can't wait to cook some of the recipes. The recipes are catorgized by post op stages which is wonderful......I'll let you know how good they are in a couple of days!

    Johns Hopkins Bariatric Center

    I went to Johns Hopkins great care.......met with Dr Steele but decided to go with Dr Nguyen. Margaret Fertado is the nut I see there and LOVE LOVE LOVE. Dr Nguyen has a great bed side manner and honestly helped me through the beginning of the surgery by calming me and rubbing my arm (I started to freak when they put the oxygen mask over my mouth). The nurses at the Bariatric Unit was a little to be desired but hey....my main concern was getting through this with 100% confidence. I live in Southern Maryland and met with 3 doctors a couple in Va and then Dr Steele then Dr Nguyen. I am 5 weeks and feel pretty good and I know if I do have problem I can reach somone ASAP.
