Surgeon Testimonial

Ki Hyun Oh M.D.
'My first impression of Dr. Oh was that he was a very busy man who didn't have time to get personal with his patients. Which was fine because he came so highly recommended by my sister. She is a nurse and used to work with Dr. Oh in the operating room. rnrnMy impression of him changed when he came to check on me 5 times the day of my surgery. He was there at least a few times every day and explained everything very thoroughly to me and my family.rnrnHis office staff are all very nice.rnrnHe was hard to understand at first because of his accent but I got to where I could understand him just fine.rnrnHe has a very strict aftercare program. If you can't/don't want something this strict

    Congratulations on your upcoming surgery!! You must be thoroughly excited! I know I was. I practically leapt onto the table! I was nervous too sure. But more excited about the upcoming life I was about to begin. I had been lurking on the OH site for quite some time while researching WLS. And when that day finally came I was ecstatic that I was going to be a “loser” like so many of our OH Family. That’s what this site is…A Family…The people here are so amazing. As you are probably well aware by now. Just know this. No matter where you are, what you’re doing or what you’re going thru. We are here and ready to help and support you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers during your surgery. Good luck and we’ll be waiting on the lighter side. Much love…

Two weeks out today.  Everything is going ok.  My incisions are still a
bit sore so it is hard wearing any pants where the waistband rubs the
incisions.  My stomach is still a little bloated from the gas and such
but the gas pains have mostly gone away.

I am still on liquids and it is getting very difficult.  I don't know
how I will go 17 more days without any real food to speak of.  I live on
Crystal Lite and Protein drinks for the most part with an occasional
broth, jello or popsicle thrown in. 

I have lost 10 pounds from what I was the day I checked in to the
hospital.  It took me until the 23rd to lose the 22 pounds I gained while I
was in the hospital.  So basically, I've lost 10 pounds since the 23rd
- in 6 days.  I can live with that. 

My husband said this morning that he could tell already.  He said I was
shrinking right before his very eyes and that he could really notice it
in my face.  I can tell some but I think we're both comparing me now to
the bloated me from the hospital.  I've lost 32 pounds in 2 weeks
counting all the water weight so yeah, it's probably noticeable!!!

I'll update as I progress.  I go back to work tomorrow afternoon.  I
hope that goes well.  Still pretty tired but it is only for 3 1/2 hours
tomorrow.  More later.
