on aug 21 i went for my PATTS test at HRRH. On aug 31 i had Laparoscopy surgery at HRRH with my WLS:Dr.Hagen. It was at 11:30 a.m. I woke up at 1:05 p.m. I want to thank all the nurses and Dr.Hagen's staff. they were all so caring and looked after me so well. I have for incisions. Dr.Hagen Said he stitched up a small hole inside of me. I do have an appointment with him later this month and will get answers out of him. I believe and so does an good friend he did a Peterson's Hernia repair on me. I have had all the symptoms for the past 6 months. Went to two walk in clinics,took prevasaid,blood test,urine test,ultra sound,hida scan,endescopy,seen my WLS many times....now I just had the Laparoscopy done. He says i have I.B.S. and I am taking Dicetel.I do not believe I have I.B.S. Who know's what is going on.....0 comments

WENT TO SEE A PLASTIC SURGEON YESTERDAY....
Nov 08, 2009
I seen a Plastic Surgeon yesterday. He is a very nice man. Has diploma's galore. VERY qualified. I was very impressed with him as he was with my knowledge on PS. He examined me and took pictures. He told me I could use the entire body lift because I have so much loose skin. A few other things he told me was I only have about 10 pounds of fat left to loose, the rest of me is loose skin. He said my thighs (inner) were REALLY REALLY bad. He said I would have to get cut from one side to the other for the tummy tuck. And I wouldn't benifit from the Pannis because I have too much loose skin. He alos informed me I wouldn't be able to loose anymore weight or tone it up because of all the loose skin I have. So exercising right now is really for nothing. I mean I could only maintain my weight but NOT loose any or tone. I really like him. He printed out a estimate of what everything would cost. I would love to go with him. We even joked and laughed. So for an entire tummy tuck and thighs, and hospital stay and everything else that goes along with it, it would cost $11,500.00 ( ELEVEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS)..........Tell me there really is a Santa Claus so I can write a letter to him, LOL.!!!!!!!
