- HEALTH TRACKER
You're welcome. Glad everything went so well for you. Thought you would like Dr. Morales He definitely doesnt have a surgeon attitude like a lot of them do. Dr. Scott never spent much time with me and always seems rushed, even thought he did 2 of the 4 surgeries I had and assisted Dr. Morales on my revision. I dont know who the new surgeon is that is helping Dr Morales, but I'm sure hes good, because it toook them a long time to get Dr Morales in there, they were extermely picky about who they brought in. Dr. Scott has been around longer and has a great reputation as a surgeon, but after having dealt with Dr. Morales I would have total confidence in him , with another surgeon helping him, He really knows his stuff. Everything he told me was right on. I think if you really wanted Dr Morales and Dr Scott together, if you tallk to Theresa, she would try and work something out. It might just take longer to get a surgery date, iif they have to work it out with both their schedules.
I dont know what the Back on Track program is . Must be sometthing new. The last time I was there was in February for my 6 month appt. They want you to come in yearly at least for 5 years. It probably isnt necessary, but I will do it. I asked Christin, the nurse practitioner, who yoiu will see fo your follow up visits, after your 1 week post op if I really needed to come once a year, and she said they like you to, to see how you are doing and since they are a Center of Excellence
I had 2 bands before I had my revision to VSG. The only problem I had was that I did have a lot of scar tissue and the surgeons had some trouble removing my port. They were able to do the band removal and sleeve at the same time, but the surgery did take 3 hrs. But other than that, I had no complications.
