    HI Erin, I have my surgery on May 12th. How are you feeling? Are you able to work right now?

    I am wondering if you are feeling any better with going on solid foods and how you are feeling in general? Is anything getting better? Is anything getting worse? Are you still tired? Are you back to work?

    Hi Erin, I've been thinking of you. I hope things are going better for you and that you're starting to be happier. If you want to get together and go window shopping or something to get out (last weekend would have been perfect) let me know. You're not very far away. xx

    Hi Erin, Just wondering how you are coming along since our fateful day on March 17. I have lost more than 24lbs since the start of my Pre-Op diet and have had very few bad effects since the surgery. I must admit however, to still feeling hungry at times during each day. People are commenting that they can see the difference and today I had to tighten the straps on my shoes because I had lost all the fluid in my feet.
    I am so sorry to hear that you had those awful complications but hope that by now you are feeling better.
    Take care, Kate
  6. How are you doing? Have I missed a recent update.? Hope your recovery is coming along!

    Hi Erin. How are you? I gather from what I read you had some issues. I hope nothing too awful!
  9. Things are good here I actually use a straw and am not having problems with it. I don't take big gulps, but can take regular swallows. Hopefully you continue to mend!
  10. WAAAAAAY lest interesting of a story than YOURS! YIKES. We were all really worried and so happy to see you back. By the way, me, with NO complications, gained 12 pounds from all the iv crap. It did not finally go back to "normal" until yesterday. Keep me posted on how you are feeling sleeve sister!
  11. Hi Erin, Hope you are on the mend and are soon back on the forum! Sending healing thoughts your way.

    Hi Erin, not sure what happened but I really hope you are better soon. Have been looking out for a post from you when saw the one saying you were still in hospital, so sorry to hear that you have obviously had a rough time. Thinking of you and wishing you all the best.

    I just wanted to post (with Erin's permission) that I just spoke with Erin on the phone. I know many people have been worried about her, so I wanted to mention she is still in the hospital but is now on the mend.

    I am certain she will appreciate any positive thoughts, prayers, love & light sent her way!
  15. How are you coming along? Hope you are recovering quickly.

On the Road - Choosing a Surgeon

by erinja on 10-11-2013 at 04:02 PM
Hi Everyone,

I attended a bariatric surgery seminar a few weeks ago and both the Medical Director and one of the Surgeon's spoke to our group. The surgeon seemed very compassionate and knowledgeable; having said that, I still want to do my due diligence and research on the 2 surgeons available. I want to get feed back from other patients treated and if possible, I'd like to see what I can find out about them via online.

Can anyone recommend any good sites with
