Today I meet my New Surgeon.



Recommended Posts

Since I moved, it was hard to find a New Surgeon. But I did find one, and I meet him today. I hope he accepts me as a patient, because I need to have a surgeon, but they only like success stories. So they will take pictures, and weigh me.

I hope we hit it off good, and he is impressed with the weight loss, as time goes on.

Also I am due for a fill. Hope I get one.

Ok Shirley, it's after 12 here in L.A. so it's after 3 in Michigan, right? What's the good news on your new surgeon? :lol:

We're all rooting for you!

Never got the chance to meet him..... He had emergency surgery. So that was a waisted trip. 108 miles one way then another back, but no Doc...

At least I filled out a chart and got weighed. Now I need to learn how to move that TURTLE... Any body know how?

Oh Shirley, nooooo! Such a long drive and the surgeon wasn't there?!?!?! I'm sorry. I haven't had to drive that far but I waited 3 hours for my surgeon to get out of surgery to get a fill once. It's just not fun. I hope your next appointment goes smoothly.

I am currently stepping up my weight loss regimen hoping to get my "turtle" moving too. I cut my carbs drastically starting this past Monday. It's been a roller coaster but I am trying to shake things up to get the scale moving again. I also have stepped up my walking by doing 2 1/2 miles in the morning and another couple of miles at lunch. The problem with that is my back (surgery in 2004), I am having problems. I will see my ortho on Tuesday to make sure I haven't done any damage.

You have done a great job losing so far and I'm sure it will continue.

Good luck, Shirley!

They called me today, and said they were sorry ( A GAS CARD WOULD HELP! YA NO !)

Anyway I go back next Thursday to meet him, and get a little fill.

After that it will be up to the N P to see me when I feel I need a fill.

I walk , but I can't walk far. Both knees are artificial.

So my Orth Doc. told me no exercise at all... Just walk.

That didn't go over well with my WLSurgeon. Like I told him,

If he says walk that;s what I'm doing.

He checked with a Ortho guy that he knew, and was told "that was very good advice.

So that's my story, and I'm sticking to it ! The good part is IT WORKS!

You're right, walking does work .. it just takes sooooo long. At least for me it does, hence the carb cutting. I don't know about you but my legs are getting really thin while my upper body fat is holding on for dear life! It's not that I am not losing on top, it's just taking a long time to see progress. I have spinal stenosis so I have to be careful about upper body exercise as well. So, while I am walking I move my arms util they are reaching for the sky. I figure any movement in my upper body will help. We can do this, Shirley ... no matter what our bodies say! LOL :lol:

Good luck next Thursday.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

      2. Maylin

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

    • HeBrokeTheChains

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
