“Zero Pain, Zero Discomfort”

Hi, my name is Burt and I am a Blossom Bariatric client. Dr. Umbach did my surgery on September 19th of 2014 and today is the 9th of December, 2014. I have lost a little over 30 pounds since surgery. I had lost about 25 prior to surgery.

I want to let everyone know how wonderful I felt immediately after the surgery. I had read on the internet, many, many, many horror stories about the pain that people experience, the discomfort, the drain that installed and how they had to spend several nights in the hospital to have the vertical sleeve gastrectomy like I did.

I experienced none of that pain or discomfort. Actually, on the evening after I left the surgery clinic, I was out shopping and walking around the Las Vegas strip. I had zero pain, zero discomfort. I had no trouble sleeping.

I have no scarring issues. There was no drain installed.

It was one of the easiest things I have ever done and the results are amazing. I have gone from a 40 inch waist down to a 32 inch waist since July of 2014 and I am so happy that I finally took the steps necessary to have weight loss for life.
