Hi, I’m new here. I was hoping to schedule my surgery in June. I’m worried about traveling across the country at this time. I was told that they were scheduling surgeries starting May 4th. But, I don’t want to have reschedule everything. I already had a cruise cancelled on me. (I totally understand why, and rebooked for next year.) But, the only time I can schedule this is June.

Any reviews on Blossom would be appreciated as well.

I had surgery at Blossom on March 12. I am currently 24lbs lost at 38 days post op. All I can say is, that place is amazing! My sister is a healthcare worker and went with me. She was so impressed with every single thing they did. After surgery there is a fb group that you can join that is just for blossom patients for support and access to blossom employee help. Worth every penny and flying for. From the hotel, to the drivers, surgery staff, etc. 100% perfect with zero complaints. I haven’t met anyone yet that was unhappy with them.

I had my surgery with them on January 6th with Dr. Sakata. They were wonderful and I wholeheartedly recommend them.

The people were caring (almost if not all of them that work there have had the surgery, so they understand the nerves and everything and can sympathize), and when I had a few complications from my gallbladder, they helped me take care of it and took it out as well (a month after my sleeve).

Hello I’m new also and haven’t scheduled my sleeve yet but I’m pretty sure I’ll go with Blossoom. I know with the covid still in the picture everywhere I’m going to wait until I know it’s safe to travel.

I’m flying United. There will be no one in the middle seats on my flight. I think they’re doing every other row as well. But, not sure.

You’re a week after me. I’ll be flying home on the 17th. Surgery is the 15th.

Hey! I’m headed there next week. Will be there from the 20th-27th for the Fast Track program. I hear so many great things about them and being a nurse myself I have a scrutinizing eye for things being up to par medically, so I’m not worried. Even though I’ve been coordinating from way on the East Coast, I feel 100% secure with these folks. I was so afraid I would have to push my surgery back, but I’m so glad I won’t. With all of the Covid changes they’ve put into place, it’ll be a bit nervewrecking to have to go to all of the appointments and into surgery l, alone, but I’m confident it will be great. All of the information has been so well laid out on their websites, videos and info pamphlets. I am thoroughly impressed by them so far.

Thanks for posting. I feel the same way. Looking forward to hearing how it goes.
