  1. Hello! I'm home and recovering pretty well I think. Feels very good to be home as couldn't sleep well at all in the hotel, so much noise and party guys next door last couple night, ugggh! My only issue seems to be how water in particular causes so much gas bubbles/pain in my stomach and burping and passing gas take it away but happened with a lot of what I take in but water is the worst. Needless to say not getting in much water at all. Able to tolerate ice chips, Popsicles, broths, jello better.. Hoping this is normal,? They said yes until swelling comes down. How are you doing? And how many days postop are you again now?

    I had surgery 2 years ago with Dr Alamanza as matter of fact on Valentine's Day on 02/14/13 ...He did not speak much English but he took very good care of me and his staff. There are some people that may have had compications but thats the risk you take having surgery. But for me everything went perfect I had gas but they gave gas-x for that. A little pain but not much, they provided sleeping medication so I slept to. I think preparation is key workout some before surgery get lots of protein cut out bad foods. As of today I have kept my weight off I went from 250 to 145 i went from a size 22/24 to a size 6 and sometime a size 2 depending on the outfit...I workout and take vitamins everyday. My experience was awesome no regrets I feel good and look good too...Good Luck

    hi there !
    Yes I am 9 days post op. I feel good. a bit tired but that is only becasue of lack of food. Trying to get it all in is very hard, but getting better with every day. Yes I am still on liquids , moving onto more pureed like pudding made with my protein powder, unsweetened apple sauce and cream soups. I have had no problems at all. The only thikg ot of the ordinary for me is Gas....LOL. I go to my doctors office tomorrow to get my stitches removed. I seen her on Tuesday and she said everything looked great. She is also doing a leak test on her own in a couple weeks to make sure everything is going as planned.
