I don't know anything about Dr. Patching except for what I've read on the net. I was just banded June 16th in Sac by Dr. Aaryan Koura, through Methodist Hospital. I have been totally happy with him and his staff. If you can check him out. His web site is slimlifecenter.com. Wish I could give you more info about Dr. Patching, you might also want to try looking at a local group site I go to at Sacramento_Valley_Bandsters : Sacramento Valley Bandsters I have found alot of good local help there.

Good Luck with your band journey. Leah

You know what's funny? My mom is in Methodist hospital (leaving today, Thank God) and I noticed all those Biractric Drs. on the board everytime I pasted by the bullentin board on the way to my mom's room. I'm going tomorrow to my 1st consult in Richmond. I live in Galt. How convienent that would have been up the street versus the bay area.

I would try to get it changed to the Sacramento area. That would make it a lot easier on you. What a journey this has been so far. Hopefully I will be banded by September. Maggie:rolleyes2:

Unfortunately, I have Kaiser. That would be so much easier. In fact, I did a mapquest and found Richmond is 75miles from home! Can you imagine driving that far for these appointments? I'm not complaining tho, I just want to get this consultation over with. I would love to even imagine I have an end in sight. Sept would be ideal.

Hey Klbs--I drive from Dixon to Sacramento to South 99 to Methodist to see Dr. Koura it's not 75 miles. But go where you have to, to get the surgery you want. If you don't know Dixon is 8 or 9 miles west of Davis. But I'll tell you it's been worth every mile. Take Care and Good Luck. Leah

:lol: I live in Sacramento. I have Dr. Patching as my doctor for my banding procedure and follow-up. I have complete faith in him. He has been very good to me in my journey. He has worked with me, answered my questions and made me feel very confortable with him.

I would recommend him to anyone. :w00t:

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!

      I have my surgery scheduled for 07/15/2021! I'm so excited! I began implementing the pre-op diet (essentially low carb) that my nutritionist gave me today! So far a pretty rough day- I didn't realize how much I graze throughout the day. But I'm excited to get these habits broken, and take control over my relationship with food!

      So far the LSD has not been bad. I have had no headaches and no complaints of hunger or cravings. Shake for breakfast, sugar-free jello for a snack, shake for lunch, another for snack, small dinner of protein and veggies and another shake for evening snack with 64 oz. of water throughout the day. I thought it was going to be hell but so far so good.
