Muhammad A. Jawad, M.D.
From start to finish (or 3 weeks out) Dr. Jawad and his staff have been supportive and helpful without a doubt. The meetings I attended pre-op at the Center along with the materials and DVD were invaluable. Every time I've had a question and had to call or email the Center I got an immediate response. I couldn't have asked for better care and I feel Dr. Jawad is the best surgeon for this procedure.
My experience with the surgery was actually uneventful. I did not feel a lot of pain right after and have had no nausea or vomiting to date (this could be rare). After awakening in the post-op room I remember sitting up and wanting to walk and see my husband. The discomfort that I experienced was a lot less than I expected and was mainly, for me, due to the heparin shots and getting used to having a tube in my side. I asked for pain med fairly regularly during my overnight stay in the hospital and then at home, only used the Codine for less than 2 weeks, less and less each day. Walking in the hospital right after surgery DID feel better so believe what they tell you. When you sit or lay down you get stiff which leads to sore. At 1 week out I was walking around my block, 2 weeks I was up to 2 miles and it was at that time that I was pretty much back to my old self. I feel terrific and look forward to my next appt. to have the G-tube removed and for a progress check. And as far as the G-tube for any newbies-its really not that bad. After a little bit you don't even know its there and its there for your health and safety. I couldn't be happier right now. Thank you Dr. Jawad & Staff!
