Well tday I am 8 weeks post-op and I must say that I am finally feeling better. That surgery took alot out of me but I am happy to report that I am 62lbs smaller and also walking better. My hospital stay was 5 days and I was oh so glad to be going home.. GOD BLESS all whom have shown me that they care and understand what I am going through. My paster J.B. Stutts was wonderful to me and treated me with the utmost respect. I have a wonderful husband and son who are the best things in my life! Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Michigan is where my surgery was and the staff was wonderful. I did have a small problem with one nurse ( i guess she was a nurse) she was very rude, and cold to me. I had to tell her you are so lucky that I can not get up and out of this bed or I would kick your ******. I was complaining of small pain and she said well you would not be here if you were not FAT. After the initial shock wore off I told her off and to never come back to my room. EVERYONE else was wonderful. I did report her to Dr. Farhan and he handled my situation. PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR ME AND HELP ME THROUGH THIS I ASK OF MY AMOS FAMILY...........GOD BLESSED ME WITH ALL OF YOU WHOM ARE MY ANGELS..........
Dear Lord, help me make a difference in
someone's life, so that they will be glad I
am their friend. Amen
Sometimes you have to be silent, in order
to be heard.
Faith is to believe on the Word of God,
what we do not see, and its reward, is to
see and enjoy, what we believe.
Dear Lord, help me to remember that though
we may have our differences we are all Your
children and that we must love one another
as You love us. Amen
O Lord, may loving be my reason for living. I
ask that You warm my heart, soften my rigid
walls and bend my pride. Amen
Heavenly Spirit, open my eyes, my ears and
my heart to those who are troubled. Show me how to make their life better, according to Your teachings. Amen
Heavenly Father, I need to let go of my grievances..
How empty are my days when I spend time nursing
hurts. How much better I feel when I pocket my pride and Forgive. Amen
Merciful Father, harboring regrets and grudges
does not benefit me. Help me to let go of unhappy
thoughts that are so destructive. Amen
Precious Lord, help me to rise above those who are
thoughtless and hurtful. Teach me how to forgive
them, as You forgive me. Amen
Faith is backed by God's promises...We are never alone.
Surgeon: Jamal Farhan, M.D.
this was me on my wedding day.
I am now 62 lbs smaller
He was very Handsome!! well you said first impression....lolo... Dr. Farhan was very plesant and caring. He see me as a person. NOT AN OBESE PERSON BUT JUST A PERSON. He gave me a general sense of well being and I was immediately calm with him. I opened up and told him my reasons why and he agreed that this would be a wonderful surgery for me. The Office staff (2) of the have had the surgery and are now bariatric counselors for the center. I like everything about him. Future patients should know he is blunt. but very compationate and can appreciate honestly. He was very serious about aftercare and maintenance of the weight and stressed this was not a cure for obesity (which I know it is not) but a tool for maintaning ones weight. As w/any surgery there are risks involved but I am doing this for me or I have no life plain and simple. I would rate Dr. Farhan a 9+. attitude is everything with me and how a person presents themselves leaves a forever impression. His surgical competence and bedside manner were wonderful. He has a wonderful heart and you will see this when you speak with him.
