I’ve Done Very Well

Hi, my name is Sharice Pierce. I am here today for my two week followup from having full gastric bypass and I had my surgery done at Valley Vista Hospital.

I’m doing well. I have not had any of the concerns and problems really I thought I was going to have. Beforehand I was nervous about having a lot of gas pain and having to run to the bathroom a lot or feeling sick to my stomach and I’ve done very well.

The doctor’s helped me with having medications that made it go very smoothly, both with handling my pain. I’m only using like Baby Tylenol now; I’m not really using anything that are stronger medications.

I did not have trouble with most of the problems I thought I would have and I am so glad I got the surgery done. I cannot say how happy I am that I have lost already I think about 25 pounds since having the surgery. So for me that’s, “Yay!”

I am just looking forward to keeping on doing my diet and my exercise and staying with this. My husband is thrilled and we’re doing good when we exercise together.

So that’s my story. I’m glad I got the surgery. I’m so grateful for Dr. Umbach’s care. The nurses and everyone here at Blossom Bariatrics have been wonderful. So thanks for everything.
