Recommended Posts

I have been changing insurance (mainly to avoid the 6 month diet, just being honest) had HIP then my surgeon suggested I switch to healthplus. I changed surgeons because that guy was a prick. I went a Sleeve info session at Maimonides hospital in Brooklyn, Ny. During the session we were told if we have healthfirst we wouldn't have to do the diet..so being the impatient guy I am, I switched over to healthfirst. Now I'm being told I might have to do the diet. I really want to get this done before I start my next semester of college. Grrr XD

I switch to Health First for the same reason too.... My surgeon told me the same thing... You should check him ... Dr Stephen Carryl in Brooklyn ... One Hansen place... My mom used him and she also referred five other ppl...

Sounds like a plan! Thank you so much. Did you or your mom have to do the 6 month diet?

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
