This seems weird the more I think about it. I had an uneventful surgery with Dr. Garcia May 21st. I'm already home and feeling just fine. Not getting in my Proteins, but almost all my fluids. So I only have four incisions... Three little ones straight across and my drain. I thought I would have five? I remember the nurses looking for another one while changing the bandages. Even my post op doc looked for the extra one. Maybe I'm worried over nothing because I have too much time? Lol

Don't worry about it. Some have 1 through their naval and other have more than 4. I had 6! I'd rather have 6 small ones instead of 1 giant one like they used to do.

Dr Garcia and I have 2. He told me that he didn't need as many because I had done so well pre-op shrinking my liver!

I was sleeved on 5/22 by Dr. Garcia. I only have 4 incisions, including the one that the drain was in. Dr. Luna commented that I was one of the lucky ones when he came to take my staples out at the hotel...whatever that means. I'm home and doing well. No worries.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
