- HEALTH TRACKER
I am a member of the Macik Menagerie! I had RNY in November of '09 and have had very good results. I have followed his instructions to the letter. I am now in the process of having some plastic surgery done (upper arms) after my 135 pound weight loss.
Don't be discouraged by his lack of good bedside manner. He WILL take the time to answer your questions and make you feel comfortable, but he will not comfort or console you. He is just not a talker.
When you go for follow up appointments you will probably spend most of your time with a nurse, one who has probably had WLS, and then he will come in to talk to you. If you have questions, ask him and he will answer.
Also when ever you have lab work done go ahead and have Macik's office make a copy for you to take with you. Then you won't have to ask to have them faxed over when you go to your regular doctor. Just saves time.
Good luck and I hope things go as well for you as they have for me.
Remember to walk, walk, walk and sip, sip, sip as soon as you can after surgery. Take one day at a time and follow the rules.
