Hi all,

I'm so excited and nervous that I have scheduled my VSG for April 29th 2019 with Dr. Alvarez! Has anybody else used him for this surgery?

I would love some advice from anybody who has been through this surgery with or without Dr. Alvarez. Any suggestions as to what to take to the hospital? What kind of pain is there? How is the recovery? How long until I can walk, drive, have sex (haha - that is the one my husband wants me to ask ;)?

Thanks so so much :)

My surgery was with Dr. Guillermo Alvarez with Endobariatric. A Dr. Alvarez but different from yours!
