Anyone gone to Blossom Bariatric (self-pay) in Las Vegas?



Recommended Posts

I was a Blossom patient, June 15th. Best thing I ever did. You hear in the posts "wish I did it sooner" and I do!! Blossom and everyone there are SPECTACULAR. No one is crabby or rude and treat you like a celebrity. Also amazing is how many have it VSG done there themselves, so they share their stories and make you feel SO at ease. My insurance would not cover it and I started googling VSG without insurance and they pop up. I also saw lots in Mexico but felt more at ease being in the US. I did the online information form ONE YEAR ago! You can get in rather quickly, but I knew I needed to go once school was out and picked June. Hope that helps! DO IT! 😁

I had the surgery at Blossom on 5/5/2021! I can’t say enough good things about the docs and the surgery ! I had NO pain .. NO nausea and NO complications . Very professional group of physicians and staff . Very compassionate , very supportive. I would highly recommend this group to anyone . The only regret I have about the surgery ... is not doing it sooner .

I DID! 👋

I was 6/15/21. I was very impressed with everything there. I was a fast track patient from out of state. I stayed in the hotel provided and had driver services as well. Everyone at Blossom treats you like a star. I too wish I did this years and years ago. But, the point is we DID it, finally.

I had mine on 2/21. I did push out my departure by a day and left Sunday instead of Saturday. All of us that were there had successful procedures, one lady was admitted to hospital for inpatient surgery after her endoscopy revealed it would need to be an open, not laparoscopic procedure, so they are prepared with hospital care if needed. I also had a hiatal hernia repair so I had a little sub sternal pain (also, I’m allergic to Toradol so I had slightly less pain meds than everyone else but it was manageable)
Drs and nurses were great. The pre op testing is super thorough. I liked the hotel and the transportation as a nice touch. Not having to rent a car reduced the stress and there is a Walmart a walkable distance from the hotel to grab supplies if needed. We ubered to the strip once or twice to check things out before surgery and it was affordable. Good luck !!

one year later any regrets about Blossom?

      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!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
