I have my RNY revision from Lapband scheduled with Dr Patel for June 26th. However, I am not happy with his office staff whatsoever. They are never the same people, the wait time for appts are horrendous and the insurance and scheduling folks are very unprofessional. So, I have an appt tomorrow with Dr. John Pilcher to see if I like his office better and I may switch doctors. I hope your experience is better than mine at Dr Patel.

Today, I had a appt with Dr Pilcher and it was AMAZING!!! What a difference the staff and professionalism makes. I would highly, highly, highly recommend his office. I am on cloud 9-today.

Oh gosh. I am going for my 1st appointment at Bariatric Solutions this week. I chose them because their reviews were all 5's. Now I am a little concerned. Maybe I should cancel for another place?

You should meet with them. I'm having Dr. Stowers do my surgery. The staff has been great, very informative, and always available. There's so many Dr out there and I know it's hard to choose. For me I wanted a Dr that primarily performs weight loss surgery. Not sure if that matters but it was one of the criteria I used to help my decision. I'm linked to realself.com where I met someone who used Dr Stower also, and she had a great recovery and results. I've been on a 6mos diet with their nutrionist for insurance approval. Scheduled for April 25th. Good luck on your decision.

I'm from DFW. Dr McCarty did a mini sleeve on Feb 10. I'm down 51lbs. His staff is awesome, and I highly recommend you check him out. His procedure is out patient, and no restrictions afterwards.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
