I just had my sleeve done today by Dr. Sekhar with New York Bariatric Group. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him, his staff, and the practice. He made me feel at ease right away and having a personal concierge to guide me through the requirements and track all of the documents for me made the process a lot easier. The concierge also handled all referrals for me and found providers in my area. I’m in Connecticut so i recommend the Farmington, CT location if you’re in mid state or around the Hartford area. Wonderful practice, wonderful doctor and overall a really smooth experience.

NYBG is great!

When I was considering surgery several years ago a friend of mine got the sleeve from Dr. Sekhar and I went to an information session he was running and I really like everything he had to say. When I signed up I was assigned a different surgeon, Dr. John Angstadt. I don't recall if it was an insurance issue or an availability issue but at first I was concerned but after I met Dr. Angstadt I was reassured and everything went great. When I needed my revision I went back to Dr. Angstadt and am very pleased with the results. The whole staff over there are wonderful.

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      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!
