I live in Whitinsville/Uxbridge area. I am hoping to get the bypass soon. I have an appt to meet with a surgeon soon. Hopefully we can chat sometime.
Well the best advice I can give you is, if your in the MA area the go see Dr David Lautz he works out of MGH and Emerson hospital now. He is one of the best bariatric surgeons in the world and has been known to fix issues other surgeons aren't able to I'm not saying you don't have a good surgeon but sometimes you need a second opinion. Also and no judgment especially because they didn't't even know this until recently but are you smoking? They have found smoking after weight loss surgery can cause bleeding ulcers in your pouch. Anyway good luck I hope this gets straightened out for you.
I also live in Webster! I had my surgery back on 2009. Feel free to get in touch with me!
my advice...appreciate the process...i wish i had kept a journal of my experience from start until now (3 years)...we change so much and it would have been awesome to have a log of how I changed and the process...take it all in...dont forget to do the head work that is needed to change...because if you dont change your head...the weight comes back.
I have my surgery scheduled for May 14th( as of right now could change lol) but I'm so anxious to get this done., I'm ready to start my life OVER again!!! I was heavier as a child but skinny all through high school. My boyfriend died when I was 23 years old and I lost it. Started drinking, eating, you name it. Then I got married and had a baby and that weight just compounded. I would yo-yo all the time. Lose 40 lbs gain it plus some but i'm almost 38 years old and Its time. I can't do this without help!!
Congrats!!! WHat great news. I can't wait to do my surgery to say I 've had success!!!
We at OH are sending our thoughts and prayers for everyone to be ok at the Boston Marathon.
* Trying to reach a loved one? Text, don’t call
The Massachusetts Emergency Management agency tweeted the message earlier that if you're trying to reach friends and family and can't get through via phone, texting is your best option as it requires less bandwidth. The Boston mayor's hotline is also a land line option: 617-635-4500.
* If you are 'Safe and Well,' please register to say so
The Red Cross "Safe and Well" page exists to let concerned friends and family know you're OK. Sign in there if you are in the Boston area and someone might be worried about you. The Red Cross also urges youto update your social media pages, too.
* Reach out with tips
The crime tips hotline in Boston can be reached at 800-494-TIPS.
* House someone who is displaced
* Do not rush to give blood in Boston
The Red Cross tweeted that there is "enough blood on shelves to meet demand," following the tragedy in Boston. However, American Red Cross spokeswoman Anne Marie Borrego tells NBC News that she encourages those who want to help or give back in some way to schedule a time in the future to give blood. Most importantly, people — especially those in Boston — can help by visiting the Safe and Well website, and to "listen to local authorities."
I love Dr Partridge. I wanted to get into her practice now that Dr Gazmuri has retired. She is full up!
I really thought that once I came to this site I would have such a great support group close to home. BOY WAS I WRONG!. For those of you reading this in silence please come out and talk. For those of you reading that don't like to reply ...please do... We are all here for each other. There are many ways to stay private. Yet most let your fears or opinion,concerns, being known a fear to tell no one. No one needs to know who you are just let your fears, concerns, and/or knowledge known. We are all here for each other. Lets help one another out.
Next week will be my one year post op from VSG Surgery. I can't believe how quickly this past year has gone by.
I feel amazing and couldn't have asked for a better surgeon and hospital staff. The folks at Newton Wellesley hospital have been fantastic.
My surgeon is Dr. Partridge and she's been nothing but fantastic!
I'm down almost 80 lbs. I can't wait to go next week. Diabetes and high blood pressure....GONE! :)
