I'm from NJ, but I've moved to the Pocono's. I'm from JC / Plainfield. My Dr is Dr Teleo he's really good. pretty hard at 1st but I like that. He did an amazing job. My sx was on Jan 28,2020. I just had my 7mnth f/u & I lost 50lbs. Not sure if u want to travel up this way bcuz the drive back will b no fun after the sx. Especially w the road bumps. Good luck on finding ur choice. The adventure will b awesome! I'm loving my new body & the way my clothes fit... awesome I tell u..lol I didn't hv choices when I went to my surgeon. I saw him & went w him. I should hv done what ur doing & looked around... Now for my Tummy Tuck I will get a referral from him to c if I'm comfortable w the Dr & am willing to travel to find the right Dr for my LAST surgery. GOOD LUCK W yours....

Mali, Dr. Sadek 😁 is my list. I'm just uncertain about the follow up care. Did you have Robotic or regular laproscopic surgery?

Hope your doing well. Thanks.

So I’ll be honest- I’m just three weeks out so i only had one post op visit so far. I only met him once before surgery. Otherwise I addressed concerns to dr antoine who has the most amazing bedside manner. I’m not sure if it was robotic but I will say that i had an amazing quick recovery. With a large hiatal hernia I barely needed pain meds and was back to normal a week later except for lifting. Three weeks out i can eat everything, my incisions look great and I’m lifting my twenty pound baby. Most of his patients had similar experiences. I know some practices might have more of a focus on education which I found lacking here. I did a lot if my own education

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
