Surgeon Testimonial

Huy Trieu MD
My first impression of Dr. Trieu was at the WLS seminar I attended in August 2007. He seemed very personable and was willing to answer any questions - even some that seemed \"out there\" to me (like the lady who asked, \"If I'm determined to kill myself smoking cigarettes, how soon can I begin again after surgery?\"). rnrnWhen I saw Dr. Trieu in his office for my initial consult, he was very informative and patient about answering questions.rnrn3/14/08 Update: I saw Dr. Trieu for my final consult today. He was very patient and answered all of my questions. I never felt like he was in a hurry, even though I know he arrived at the office at least 15 minutes late (if I was his first appointment), as I saw him come hurrying in. He seemed very confident in his ability to do laparoscopic surgery, even on very large patients. I guess if you have to have surgery, better a confident surgeon than a nervous one!

Monday's the day!
posted 4/5/08 5:15 am
     Well, only this weekend to get through and then it's on to the losers' bench. My surgery is scheduled for Monday morning, April 7th. I have to be at the hospital at 10:00 AM. I would assume that means my surgery is scheduled for 11:30 or 12:00.

     I began to panic a little yesterday about all the things I might not be able to eat. I think this was a reaction to 11 days on a liquid diet. I posted on the main board and got many positive responses. I need to remember it is all about what I WILL be able to do, not what I WON'T be able to eat.

     After 8 months, the adventure truly begins. . .
