Me too, he's the best. I haven't been to any support groups. I got pancreatitis from the surgery about 2 weeks after. Even though Metz was going through all that stuff, he still came and checked on me in the hospital everyday while not working. When were you sleeved?

Don't get me wrong. If I had surgery before they let Metz go, I don't think I would have had any problems with him. The issue was that I was literally 3 weeks from having my surgery almost the LAST WEEK OF THE YEAR and my family was changing insurance on January 1st. Metz didn't have rights to operate at Parker any more and I couldn't risk waiting until 2013 to find out where he would be working. I did not want to go through the whole insurance process again and I didn't want to risk not getting the surgery at all. So, I took my chances with Dr. Long. It was emotionally stressful. Long was professional but he didn't know me from Adam before the surgery. Met with me once and I am sure his life was topsy-turvy. Before my surgery, all of Metz's staff quit. I don't blame them, but I was 3 days out from surgery and I needed to speak to someone about a problem I was having. I didn't hear for three more days (no one in office!). Honestly, I don't blame Long. I blame the hospital for such a crappy handling of the whole situation. It was also a complete surprise because I didn't understand that Metz was not in practice for himself. I didn't understand that the practice BELONGS to the hospital.

Oh I hear you. I would have done the same thing in that situation. I was thankful that I got the surgery before he left

I had my surgery at St Lukes, I was very lucky that I missed all that stuff. In fact I didn't even know he was gone until I showed up at my three month appointment. It was then I realized how different it was and I chose to follow Metz after that. He was approved through my insurance for my 6 month check. He is a great doctor and person. I really like how it seems like he remembers my whole family and situation when I go there. Also now that he is on his own he can operate on my hernia.

I am scheduled for Monday. At this moment I can make it to the hospital, but with this newest round of rain coming, I am hoping no more roads close around me.

I am having Pettine in Fort Collins. I live in Berthoud, for several hours yesterday, I couldn't have even made it to Loveland. As of now, I can. However rain is moving in again and it is supposed to rain all day tomorrow.
