  1. Hello everyone! I am in need of some help/guidance! I had gastric sleeve in 2012, out of the country, due to no insurance at the time. Now I feel I need a revision. I have insurance - United HealthyCare Oxford. Does anyone have any experience with these circumstances? Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Hello, i had surgery on 3/28 and i am about 7 days out I have had no complications at all, THank GOD No pain, or discomfort. At times I wonder if anything was really done!! However, i have a question What is up with the growling in my stomach?? Does that mean i am hungry?? I havent felt hungry at all, but I am very conscience of making sure I get all my liquids and stuff in. I am on the puree stage. However, sometimes my stomach growls, literally; or it will make another weird sound. Am i hungry?I dont think its gas, but who knows I was just very curious, because sometimes it happens while im drinking or out of the blue-- like before bed or when I wake up! Anybody else??
  13. I'm 2 weeks out as well and was wondering. So just Protein and fluids, got that!
  14. This is great! I love schedules!!! I'm only 1 week post-op- so ill be saving this!
  15. I had surgery 3/28 And today had my 1 week (short by 1 day) check up---13lbs lost! I think I'm still in shock!!
  16. When you say bath, you mean laying soaking in your tub? Because I showered the very next day!
  17. I had my surgery on 3/28/12!! Makes me 3 days post-op And I feel just fine. I had no pain after surgery, they removed the morphine by Thurs. I have very little-to no discomfort and am able to drink my liquids per day. I am very grateful for such a great recovery session I'm just a bit confused I don't know when I should be drinking. I literally feel like I'm drinking all day long! For example today 830am-cup of tea Between 915-11 drinking Water 1130-Protein I mixed 16oz of water with 2 1/2 scoops of whey protein I am still drinking that And at 1230-broth I am able to keep everything down no problem I'm still w the protein from this morning Is this normal?? I feel like a need a time line Any suggestions?

    What Should I Pack?

    I also went away for surgery. And less is more then enough. The first day in the hospital you have to wear the hospital gown and the next day you have to wear pjs or a a flowy summery dress. Nothing tight And the day your get to go home, a flowy summer dress n flip flops is perfect! Hope this helps Also--i packed books, and laptop and stuff and used none! Just concentrate on walking, walking, walking!
  19. Hello, hello, hello!! Ok so i havent been on this site for too long, however I have been a active reader. This is my first offical post! I wanted to share that I am having surgery, one week from today on Wed 3/28/12 I will be having surgery in the Domincan Republic with Dr. Luis Betances. I live in New York, however I am self pay and decided to come to my home country where I can be babies and taken care of by my amazing parents. So the day has finally come. I have not been on this surgery journey for too long. I literally began researching and making decision in January. My best friend is having her surgery, and she has been on this track for a few years. I will admit-- i was against the surgery at first. However, GOD had different plans for me than i had for myself--and He began opening doors that I was not even knocking!! And here I am today- ready! I am soo ready!!

    March 28! The Big Day!

    I weigh in on Tues, so I don't know how much or if I've lost yet. My stomach is a bit bloated still from surgery I paid $11,000 for the surgery, including hopsital stay. I did all my pre testing here, because I don't have insurance in the states, and everything came to about $900. So I guess $12000 in total total--not including flight

    March 28! The Big Day!

    @D1NOnlysexylady I am feeling great! No problems or pain at all! Thank God!! And YES surgery in the motherland DR I had surgery with Dr Luis Betances in Santo Domingo I was operated in Cedimat It was a great experience. His staff is so helpful and always available I heard about him through my aunt, who had surgery in Nov. It was a smooth transaction. For me the little inconvince, was that I am from Santiago which is a bit far from the Capital But other then that! Smooth sailing, many times I couldn't believe how easy it was. I arrived in DR on 3/11 and had surgery 3/28. I did all my pre testing and all that within the first few days arriving and having my consultation I am probably going to stay for about 2 more weeks, until I'm on food and off liquids! I have my 1 week check up on Tues 4/3!!
  23. Sleeve-sister!!! I will have you in my prayers God will be watching over us!!
