Las Vegas NV Sleevers!



Recommended Posts

Yup, thanks. Nothing but the post surgery diet plan, it appears. Oh well. But if anyone wants to get together for a Protein shake, I'm buying!

Oh no!

it took me right to the seminar schedule, sorry.

No, it took me to the seminar schedule, but the only thing happening while I am there is the

Blossom Bites (Post-Op)

seminar which, I am assuming, is the post-op diet planning on Oct 29th.

I'm heading to Vegas next month (ugh!) for Dr. Umbach. Traveling from Montana.

I'm from Montana too. Considering if I dont get qualified by my insurance I'm looking into Vegas to. What part of MT are you from.

I am traveling from Washington to have my surgery done by dr umback. How was it traveling afterwards? Did you stay through Monday? Were you able to leave the hotel and get some sights in?

Traveling was fine. Wear the TED socks and walk around on the plane every 20 minutes or so to avoid blood clots.

My surgery was at 8:00 and I was discharged around noon and back at the Golden Nugget by 12:30. Took a 4 hour nap, woke up, took a shower and the wife and I went out to dinner. I told the waiter I had a late lunch and wouldn't be eating. No problem. We walked all over downtown and I even played a few hands of blackjack.

The next day we went up to the strip visiting a lot of the casinos. Walked no less than 5 miles, I'm sure. Sunday, of the same. Met with Umbach Monday morning and he removed pain pump and final check. He is very close to the airport now, so it is a quick jaunt to the airplane.

Good luck!

Thank you it is so nice to hear how well you were feeling afterwards. So you had to have a pain pump? That is not something I have heard of? Do you know if all patients have a pain pump after the procedure? Was the removal hard or painful?
