Surgeon Testimonial

Aziz Richi M.D.LLC
Dr. Richi is a very matter of fact, right to the point kind of guy....he doesn't mince words. He's a really no-nonsense type dude. He is an excellent doc! I am happy that he was at the helm of my surgery because as soon as a complication arose, he did what he knew to do, instruct my family to PRAY! He also used wisdom and didn't try to rush and finish the job but put my safety first and I appreciate that. He is a stickler about following the rules and often says if I want to be successful just listen to him and his team. I am determined to be successful, therefore, I will listen to him and his team. He has a great aftercare program and the staff is all on board with it. They have all been really great.
I didn't really care about his bedside manner cuz all I wanted to hear from him was that I can go home and as soon as he said that, those dang stockings came off!
Excellent surgeon and I would recommend him to any and everyone considering this surgery in the area.

    My sister's surgerey didn't go as well as expected today. About an hour before they were finished, Alicia's blood pressure dramatically dropped and the doctor stopped the operation and rushed her up to ICU. They thought that she had a blood clot but when they did a cat scan, they didn't see anything. They ended up putting a stint in her just in case. She has a breathing tube and is heavily sedated. They will continue with her surgery on tomorrow if she remains stable. I'm asking that everyone who can get a prayer through to please pray for my sister. I am currently caring for her three beautiful children and God knows they need and love their mother. I'll keep everyone posted as to her condition. Thank you.

Making Progress
posted 11/10/08 3:21 pm
okay...so its been a minute since I posted anything....making progress....yayyyyyyyyy!!!! I am very excited....I went to see the nutritionist on Oct 30th. It was an excellent meeting and an eye opener too...I know that I am not alone when I say that I have been on just about every diet there is...even on some a couple of times....once I sat down with the NUT and she began to write down what I was eating... along with the amount of excercise I do..it made so much sense to me why for YEARS i have been losing the same 35 pounds!!!! I don't eat enough....now wait a minute...I know you're saying what? then how did you get so big then...well I will tell you...I am an active big girl...my heart is strong I do the elliptical for an hour and treadmill for 45 minutes to an hour....once the nut explained that I only burned what I ate never tapping into the stored fat because   i wasn't eating enough to keep the metab going....so my body knew I would burn the energy so it would snatch as much of it to store as possible, thus...FAT, FAT, FAT....lose a little, gain a lot....crazy! So anyway the RNY is the way to go for me since the purpose of the Lap Band is to have restriction....apparently I'm great at restricting myself so it wouldn't help me at all...so forget all that...my mind is definitely made up!

So TODAY I had my ultrasound, upper GI and EKG done!!!! And I have my sleep test tonight. I am on a mission.... on this coming Friday...which is also my 40th birthday, I will be taking my psych eval. Yes indeed, I am trying to  get all of my requirements handled ASAP. Once the psych eval is done, I can have the office submit all of my insurance docs for preapproval. I was hoping for a date in December, but it will be more like January sometime, I think, unless someone cancels surgery for some reason....but I'm greatful that all is well so far....keep me lifted!
