    I'm having mine done as an out patient in New Iberia at The New Iberia Surgery Center. It is actually in the hospital, so if any complications arise I would be admitted there. He only accepts patient he feels qualify for out patient, and I will have to stay in a hotel until he releases me. He actually makes house calls and feels you get better rest not in the hospital. I had to self pay and this seemed like the best option. Where are you going?

9 days out... Ugh!!

by danrhowell on 06-21-2013 at 07:14 PM
OMG I didnt realize how different everything was going to be. I ate a pudding cup and it went straight thru me. I am finding that anything dairy is tearing my stomach up. Havent gotten any type of proteins into my system. Chicken broth makes me wanna vomit, beef broth make me vomit. Cream of soup isnt working. Right now I am living off of Gatorade. Finding that its really hard to get a whole lot of drinking done. Water doesnt work for me. I am really starting to worry about this. I go to the doctor

3 days post op...

by danrhowell on 06-15-2013 at 01:34 PM
Well I have been sleeved for 4 days and it is the weirdest feeling I have. I am not hungry, but I have bubbles in my stomach. passing A LOT of gas and also burping a lot. I am finding it very hard to swallow liquids down as it catches in my chest and hurts for a good 5 minutes. I am kind of worried and will probally call the hospital back and ask if that is normal. Just want to be very cautious as my grandmother had the by pass done 6 years ago and she passed away the day after I did surgery. So

Any One with Peoples Health

by danrhowell on 07-25-2012 at 10:46 PM
Has anyone that has peoples health been approved for the sleeve yet? I am with them and was told no one has been approved yet for the sleeve through them so I am starting to worry that I will not get my sleeve no matter what I do. Regardless if I have neck surgery or not.

Scared and Confused!!!

by danrhowell on 07-21-2012 at 05:01 PM
So I had to go see my neurosurgeon for my neck and lower back. One of the reasons I was having the sleeve done was because of my lower back. After talking with my surgeon he told me that I was going to have to have another neck surgery. (previous fusion of C5-C7 Sept. 2010) So I started to freak and asked him what was that going to do about my sleeve. He stated that it shouldnt stop me from being sleeved, but I needed to check with my Sleeve doctor. I do not go see him till 8-10 so I decided
