    Oh! How exciting! Do you have a date yet?
  8. so i have a couple questions..... so a couple of my doctors are wanting to do a couple other procedures on me. such as my obgyn wants to do a hysterectomy,my orthopedic dr. wants to do surgery on my knees, my oncologist wants to do a bone marrow test to see why i keep bruisingup up in different parts of my body. so with all of that being said i would like to know if i should wait until after my procedure to continue on with these things or if its ok do these things before?

    also upon my return i would like to if it wil be recomended to get The Myers Cocktails done to help with recovery? The Myers Cocktail consists of:

    IV Fluids Normal Saline 1000ml with added:

    Magnesium choride Hexahydrate 825mg
    Selenium (sodium selenium) 55mcg
    Calcium gluconate 300mcg
    Ascorbic Acid 10gm
    Thiamine 100mg
    Riboflavin 5-phosphate 2mg
    Niacinamide 100mg
    Pyridoxine hcl 100mg
    Hydroxocbalamin 1mg

    and / or the use of essential oils? Doterra is the name of the essential oils. So just wanting to know if it will be ok to use the oils still up until my surgey date and then resume them afterwards? or if i need to stop them at anytime before my date?

    If you want another doctor you will have to go to a different facility. As far as I know he is the only Dr. in TJ with Weightloss Agents.
  10. so ive been reseaching dr. Almanza and his reviews are kind of scary to me . so how do you deal with patients wanting to possibly request another dr?

Hi I'm Marty I am a mother of one of my own in three step daughters I just really wanted to come back on here I hadn't been on here since before my surgery date which was October the 20th 2017 I just wanted to say that things went just fine like I didn't have any problems that I know of during surgery or anything of that nature I was a little weaker when when coming out of surgery I threw up a little bit and it has been hard for me to get my liquids in but I am still trying and I'm starting to feel

60 days and counting

by Martini on 08-20-2017 at 11:50 PM
So as of today I just realized I have 60 days to the T for my procedure.I'm very excited as well as scared shitless. I have been absorbing everything that I can as far as things to do, things to expect and things that just come however whatever. I think that I'm just anxious and ready for it to come you know my day to come and get here and be over with is this a normal feeling? how do or how did you react knowing that you only had 60 days left? two months that's all....

Im so scared of failing!!!!

by Martini on 07-26-2017 at 02:59 PM
i have my date already. but the problem for me is knowing when to start doing a low calorie diet. i was only told to do a liquid diet for 5 days before my procedure. they never said anything about doing a low calorie diet or anything else for prior to surgery.

Also my next issue is that my family at home is not very supportive of anything. I have already been mentioning the fact that im not supposed to be eating any beef or pork. but the more that i express any of this
