anyone sleeve in san bernardino ca?



Recommended Posts

Dr. Krahn and his team were professional and supportive. I stayed overnight in the hospital in my own room and the nursing staff was very attentive. I would definitely refer this hospital and especially the doctor to preform your surgery. I was very nervous but received encouragement and support before surgery and the next thing I know I was in recovery.

If you don't mind travelling a little bit, give a look at Dr. Ara Keshisian in Glendale. He has been doing DS's (sleeve plus intestinal rerouting) for a good long time which means he has done more sleeves than most any other bariatric surgeons, and one of the handful capable of doing the very complex RNY to DS revision (not that you need one, but good to have an overqualified surgeon than an underqualified!) He is the guy I would go to if I were in the market for a sleeve (or other revsion) in So Cal.

I had mine done by Dr. Peter Fedorka out of kaiser in Redlands but the surgery was done by him and his staff at St. Bernadine in SB. I was treated very well by all staff and the after care is just as good. I had it done on May 16th.

I am currently on my 6th week Option class with Kaiser out in Fontana. I am glad to hear the good experience at St. Bernadine's Medical Center.

I should be celebrating that I finally recieved the telephone call to schedule my mental health appt. Im kind of bummed that I have waited 4 weeks after my class to get this appt to find out my appt is late Sept. This means I may have to wait 4 weeks to meet with surgeon and another 4 weeks to have the surgery lol.... Im just excited the anticipation has really got to me.

How did you get your surgeon appointment so fast?!! Lol. I'm out of Fontana too. Had my final appointment on 10/12 and now I'm still waiting for a call to set up a surgeon appt. Ugh I swear this waiting process is a Bitch! from the looks of it if your surgery is scheduled for the end of Nov mine probably won't be till Dec. FML

Im nor sure how or why. The wait is frustrating. Just be by your phone to answer that call, beacuse they have so many patients they will just move down their list. Which can extend your wait time. I can't believe I started this journey back in April and finally the day is more of a reality. You'll get that call sooner than you know it.;)

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
