I haven't had the opportunity to meet Dr. Puri but if I need a GI doc, I will definitely keep him in mind.

I am in Northern VA - Alexandria, anyone in the area? Want to perhaps get together at a Starbucks or another good spot. (I am on liquid diet, post-op) open to setting up something.

I'm down in Richmond. A little bit away from Alexandria. So how is post-op life? How are you feeling now? Much pain?

Pain is minimal, honestly. Incision sites may be a bit irritated if they rub wrong. Or soreness if move in uncomfortable way or too quick. I was discharged without any pain medication. Gas discomfort is maybe the worst.

That's great. My surgery is scheduled for September 15th and I've been a little apprehensive about it. Please post regularly. I am anxious to hear about your progress.

Not sure what facility you are going to, I went to Fair Oaks where I honestly had a great experience considering the situation. Attentive and helpful staff, good surgeon and watchful people. I had a rny GBP, with no hernia repair. And I have the six, about two inches each, incisions. Bonded with medical glue. Clear liquid diet three days pre-op, and liquid post op. I walked to the bathroom that evening, recovery was okay, a little nauseated, sore but numb, Tylenol via iv and roxycodone via mouth post op. If you have any specific questions, feel free to PM or post here.
