Muhammad A. Jawad, M.D.
I met Dr Jawad on 4/28/05 for the first time. He did a seminar for four of us bariatric patients in his office. I was impressed with his knowledge and he was very factual and very serious. Some doctors have a kind of funny bedside manor which sometimes can make a patient somewhat comfortable. Dr Jawad isn't this way but, I gained trust in him right away because of his knowledge. He tells you right up front what to expect from him and his staff.
At first I thought it was a little odd that when you are in pre op it seemed common your doctor would come out and say hello to you but, Dr Jawad says he doesn't do this but, feel assured he is in the operating room. I guess he is the doctor and he does things his way. He addressed everything is a very professional manor but, serious manor. I had my surgery 5/3/05 I was told to be at Munroe Hospital at 6:00 am which I was. In a small way I wish I would have seen him before the surgery maybe just to know he is the one that really did the operation. Kind of stupid huh? I was asleep by the time I got into the OR and I woke up in recovery. His surgical comptence is much better than his bedside manor. The whole time I was in the hospital every nurse, X Ray technicians and nursing tech's told me what a great doctor I had that he was the best at this hospital.
He came everyday to see me and stayed with me until he discoved what he could do to fix the situation. I had a tough time which I will explain in another section of my profile. Dr Jawad was right there for me even on Mothers Day he came right to my rescue when I thought I was dying or having a heart attack. Within five minutes he fixed the problem and this time I even got a smile out of him. I would recommend him to anybody. I don't see him for another month now so lets see if he won't laugh on our next visit.

Gosh I haven't been back to this site for a long time. I am now 2 years 2 days post opp. My lowest weight was 138 lbs put that was just for a few days. I generally maintain a weight of 142 pounds which would make my total weight lose of 124 pounds. If I were not 52 years old I would consider plastic surgery. My only regret is not having this done when I was 35 years old instead of 50.
It wasn't that easy of an ordeal but, I got through it. I do suffer occasionally suffer from gas and one would think it is just as bad a labor. The gas gets into my upper back and nothing I do seems to get rid of it but, time. It seems it last over 24 hours and of course it is a food issue. I am just guessing but, I have suffered with this at least four or five times in two years. About nine months after my surgery my gallbladder was removed.
I am very happy with the weight gone and as time goes by I am able to consume more food and even though I haven't gained any weight I do have a fear and sometimes suffer from a little anxiety. I never ever want to be heavy ever again and if my clothes fit a little tight one day I jump right on the scale. I will never ever consume soda again I believe that played a big role in my life and my weight. I wish I loved to work out but, I didn't like it when I was heavy and I don't like it now.
I am happy now with myself and I have self esteem which I didn't have when I was heavy. On that note I will log back in later on when I have more to report.
