    I did not have private room
    And I went by myself
    Don't regret either decision

    I keep seeing that everyone suggest getting a private room. Well, so far I have not worried about it. Do you think I should?

    How is it going? I was told that I should not lift anything over 10 pounds for two weeks. Do you find that to be the case. I ask this because I have a son that is one.

    Are you taking vitamins? If so, what kind? Also, I was not able to find a surgical removal kit in CVS or Walgreens. Did you get one?

    Glad to hear you are doing well....I live in Vero, we are neighbors. DId your Ins. refuse to cover bariatric surgery? I am going to Dr. Garcia, for a revision, lapband to sleeve. Are there any support groups in the area? I think that is important, & this board is extremely helpful. Can we go to a local Dr. sponsored support group. Who did you get to follow you for aftercare? Thanks
  9. Looking forward to your comments and journey forward. Good job taking this step to a better life.
  10. Thank you

3 year sleeveversary

by BigJ on 03-10-2018 at 10:34 AM
Doing great, today is three years after Dr. Almanza Saved my life.
Thank you Dr. Mario Almanza.
I most likely would not have made it alive to today without this life saving surgical procedure and would not have been here to see my first grandchild born just days ago.
If anyone is worried about how this sleeve works just know that it will without a doubt extend your path to more years of life. I know because before the sleeve I was told by the doctors that not only was I MORBIDLY

I am approaching my one year anniversary with a Sleeve from Dr. Almanza.
I will post a photo in my profile.
I must tell everyone that a year gone by and I am ecstatic over the results of my decision to Sleeve.
I want to thank everyone that helped me along the way, all the great folks on this board and Weightlossagents.com for connecting me to Dr. Almanza and the professional staff at his hospital, also the wonderful staff members at the Hotel Real Del Rio, They went all out

Just a little at a time...

by BigJ on 03-18-2015 at 08:33 PM
Surgery on 3/10/15, back home on the red eye to FL 3/15/15, back to work at 23:30 3/15/15, all is good, little to no discomfort today, I'm now tipping the scale at 325lbs..down 42lbs since pre-opp diet. I am keeping my fluid intake up with powerade zero. 32oz by noon and 32oz to bed time, Seems like I have the cup with me everyplace I go. Today I had sore muscles in my legs and feet...also felt just a bit sleepy. I feel so much better then the first couple of days after surgery.
As promised
