Any New Jersey Gastric Sleevers?



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved by Dr. Trivedi on July 30th. Had a wonderful experience. Feeling great, down 25 pounds, 18inches and 4 pants sizes. Off all diabetic and blood pressure meds since surgery day (I had diabetes for over six years pre-op) and had a normal HgbA1c at six weeks post-op. This was the best decision I've made to go through with the surgery.

Good luck to you all!!

I was sleeved on 8/15 by Dr Balsama (or as my aunt calls him Dr. Cutie Pie) at Kennedy Hospital. He was a wonderful surgeon.

He was my surgeon also and a cutie pie for sure! Lol. Congrats!!!

Hi everyone, I'm in Monmouth County NJ - have tentative surgery (sleeve or band - leaning toward sleeve) scheduled for 4/12...anyone else use Bayshore Community Hospital in Holmdel? How was your experience there? I have Dr. Karl Strom (with Dr. Shakov assisting)...they are both so nice and helpful. Wishing everyone the best...I'm very glad to have found this site. May you all be very blessed in your journey!

Vineland nj here' date=' having surgery at sjrmc june 8th with dr attia[/quote']

How was your experience with Dr. Attia? He is who I saw & will most likely do my surgery since I'm right here in Millville. What was your process? What insurance do you have? What Psychiatrist did you use? & how long did it take to get the ball rolling once you had your initial consultation with Dr. Attia? I'm so ready to get started! I go to my first group meeting tomorrow night @ Fitness Connection. What should I expect? Sorry to bumbard you will so much @ once, you're the first person I've seen from my area with the same Dr.. Please forgive me

Hi I still haven't had my surgery yet but Dr. Attia is a very good Dr. from the short time I've been in his care. He takes time to sit down and talk you through any questions or concerns and From my experience, he doesn't treat his patients like numbers or dollar signs but like human beings in need of help. Trust me, I've had my strange questions and normally would feel belittled by my Dr. for me ignorance but I felt so comfortable talking to Dr. Attia. To top it off, he's an extremely handsome man so that eases the nerves lol hope this post helps a bit

I am being sleeved this Wednesday the 27th by Dr. Forrester at Overlook Hospital. If anyone has been sleeved by him or his team at NJ Bariatrics Center I would love to hear about your experience. Congrats to all who have been sleeved and good luck to future sleevers!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
