    Getting sleeved in one hour!

    Good luck you’ll do great... be sure to get up as soon as you can and start walking. I had my surgery in March 2018. Best decision ever.

    Blossom Bariatrics In Las Vegas

    I heard that some people and places have done nicotine test and failed and surgery was canceled for them. I never smoked so they never tested me. Good luck and I was scare, excited and almost backed out of my surgery but I did not. Best thing and my 2 yr anniversary is in March..

    Hernia removal

    I had a hernia repaired during my sleeve. I have seen it is very common to find it while they are in there. Mine was very small. However we did discussed what ifs before the surgery and what I would want him to do in certain cases.

    Sick after 4 mos

    I just had kidney stone (genetics both sides of family) surgery so weak from that. I will definitely have to look into that.

    Sick after 4 mos

    It took me almost 9 months to finally eat more than 6 tiny bites of food during each meal. I also developed acid reflux after 4 months. And now I am having issues with taking the vitamins now after a year.
