Recommended Posts

Hi, was wondering if anyone is from Houston currently starting preop diet?! My surgeon is Dr. Robert Davis and I start my preop on the 5th of July.

I hope to start soon and am actually seeing Dr. Primomo in Dr. Davis' office. Just waiting on AETNA so I can schedule the surgery date!

I had to do 6 months and it's been over for a while now, I just had to wait until my mom would be off for summer to help me out with my kids. I only lost 10 pounds during it

Thank you for the positive feedback about Primomo - he is scheduled to be my surgeon as well when insurance allows the surgery.

Dr. Primomo and his assistant are the best. I had an old Molina band that was placed in 1996. It had eroded my stomach and adhered to my spleen and liver. My surgery lasted almost 4 hours. Dr. Primomo was able to get the band out and revise to RNY. Surgery was on a Wednesday. I came home on Friday and cooked dinner for my family on Sunday and trimmed my rose bushes. Lol....

@@cinand38 Thank you for your insight about Primomo. You have been through a lot. Congratulations on successful surgery. How long ago was your surgery with him?

Dr. Primomo is so kind and easy to talk to. It has been a blessing working with him so far and look forward to sharing equally positive surgery stories after.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
