How many sleeves has he done?

I still have my band, so he will remove it when he does the sleeve and gall bladder removal. I'm not sure the total number of sleeves he's done, but he's done around 216 since the first of 2007, with 223 band to sleeve revisions. He still does more gastric bypass surgeries, as that's what most insurance co.'s will pay for. He's done 1787 of them and 817 lap bands. He's also a general surgeon, so he's done thousands of gall bladder removals, appendectomies, etc.

Oh hell no! If my doctor wanted me to go home 24 hours after surgery I would have found another doctor. Dr. Aceves was the Doc I choose JUST because he was so exact and caring. The second day after surgery I was the worst, I slept all day and was in pain. I was there three days and soooo glad of it. IT is just a way that the doc can make sure you are ok no leaks before they let you go.

I have really liked the after care offered my Dr Aceves, any time I call they return my call if I do not get them directly or answer any questions I have on the spot. DOC has been great!!! His staff superb!

Hi Texas T-

I was also a self-pay because my insurance company wouldn't pay for the VSG. Like you I was worried that if I had a complication, it could be devastating financially. However, my surgeon was very experienced, and I was fine. If your surgeon has substantial experience doing VSG, I think the chances of complications are very, very low.

I had surgery on a Tuesday at 7:30 am and went home Wednesday around 6:00 pm. My husband was nervous for me but everything was fine. You need to listen to your body and help your doc make the right decision for you.:001_unsure:

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
