Yes, Lajodster he is....the surgeon is really great!! He's very patient, answered all my questions, I introduced him to my family, and they liked him as well. The staff in his office are very nice, very helpful, and again very patient. However, I can't really give you any input as to the JFK hospital experience, since I requested that my surgery be done at St. Peter's Hospital in New Brunswick. This was only because my family and I have been to St. Peter's before, and all of my medical records are already there. My primary physician works out of St. Peter's as well.

A word of advice...organization is key!!! I always had a folder and something to write with on me to every appointment, especially with the nutritionist!! You will get alot of handouts, and if you're like me, you'll have alot of questions! I always went to every appointment with a list of written questions, and once again, they were extremely patient and supportive in answering everything for me...actually they kinda liked it, because it shows you're truly engaged in the process, so they know you'll be successful!!

I wish you the very best, and much success!!! See you on the 'Loser's' Side'!!!

He's good. I had a revision but had the band removed first then had the sleeve 3 weeks later. My stomach always feel like I ate something that didn't agree with me...hate it! I was at the post op today. Got the drain removed. Boy, did that sh** hurt! There was 12 inches of tubing inside me. There was no compassion for any pain but at least I got it removed.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
