She is new and scared give her a break from the rude comments

That wasn't rude.

Bless your heart.

I am so sorry to hear this. Hopefully you can have revision surgery to correct this.

What is a stomophy X. Never heard of it. Just tried to Google it' date=' but nothing came up. Nevertheless, I wouldn't let this "nut" do one more thing with my body. Go to a reputatble surgeon who has proven track record for performing surgery and get a second opinion. It should be fairly easy to determine whether the surgery was done at all, or done incorrectly. If you find out that the surgery was done incorrectly make you next stop to a good attorney; then call AETNA and get them all the information they need e.g. second opinion information so they can go after him too and, work with you to get this straightened out. IJS... I live in MD and I had my surgery performed at Wash Hospital Center, not my preference but that's where my doc's practice is. His name is Dr. Brebbia. The general office staff left a lot to be desired, but the physician's group and nutritionist were very knowledgeable and methodical about their business. They very definitely took their business seriously. The have a whole group of physician's associated with their practice with different specialities. You are in NoVa, so it's a thought. Good luck, be patient, but be persistent.[/quote']

My surgeon is Dr. Brebbia and I agree that his group was/is meticulous, dedicated, and very knowledgable. I questioned every step before surgery that they made and still question each step after.

That's what you have to do. And I agree being in NoVa, its a thought/suggestion. May God be with on your Quest for answers. Be dedicated. Be determined. Keep the Faith.

Please please tell me again who this surgeon is who botched these two ladies sleeve surgeries? I'm just paying my 750 down payment Thursday and I'm having it done with Dr. Cabrera in TJ Mexico at the MiDoctor. I'm getting freaked out' date=' I'm a single mom of 3 great kids, I'm all they have I need to pick a reputable surgeon. Not like we all don't have too, I've never done anything for me before. I turn 50 this year and my oldest son is getting married.[/quote']

Be careful I asked that question being concerned and scared because I'm in beginning stages also and that's how it started I feel like I can't even go here to asked question because everyone assumed I was saying thinking she was lying only because at first I couldn't understand why she wouldn't tell who her surgeon was big mistake coming in here now I'm afraid to go get the surgery this was also my only support

Hi. I am new. I am three months in toward my 6 month required pre-op appointments. I have been looking forward to this board helping by not only providing information, but support. However, I am really surprised by all the nasty comments. Is this how it always is? I have seen it on several other topics as well. Now I am sure that some people are grumpy without food, but I am just so blown away at some of the responses from people. It does not make me feel encouraged if I have a question in the future.

I'm sorry you feel you've been victimized.

Wasn't it you who posted

"IF they are telling the truth, why won't they name their surgeon?"?

That may not be verbatim, but, I also got the impression that you were calling the poster a liar.

Heck, it might not have even been you. I'm just going on memory here.

Maybe I'm getting two people mixed up.

      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!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

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