Does anyone how long they let you stay at Cipla after surgery? do you get released the next day to go home or are you allowed to stay there 2-3 days?


Same here. Tests on 15th surgery on 16th. When's your flight. That will be cray if we on the same flight out.
One day is included stay at the clinic. I'm going for 10 days I will be staying with Yasmin. Heard great things about her. My mom is also getting surgery ;-) My flight is at 7am and some change from JFK on the 15th. We can def exchange contacts. Email me at loyaltyiskey23@aol.com

Helpppp Does anyone know of a nurse on call?????????????

Hello to all,

Being that I am staying at my family's place to recover and just found out CIPLA only allows you to spend one night, I was wondering if anyone knows of a nurse I can call to visit me at my place to take care of me for the first 5 days.


Your booked for when in OCTOBER?

Thanks girly!!

Iron-rich Foods wish I would've known this 3 wks ago

If your hemoglobin is low, focus on eating iron-rich foods, such as fish, eggs and beef. Non-animal sources of iron include beans, apricots, broccoli, spinach, asparagus and farina. Vitamin C-rich foods help your body absorb iron, so eat citrus or tomatoes with iron-rich foods

I checked my hemo 2 saturdays ago and it was at 11.2 now I'm trying to raise it to 13.

Thanks hopefully
Don't worry it will all be ok. Ask the rh to make you special juices. I'm happy Duran puts one's health first.

lack of attention

I dont mean to be negative but I have not had a chance to meet Duran for a 1on1 consultation I went to Cipla twice and she just gave me advice on the juicing and the treatment for like 4min. Im so upset cuz I told Elizabeth Duran asked me to come back today to see her for a consultation and long story short i was in Cipla for 3hrs and while doing the treatment for my hemo and still no sign of Duran when i go back down her office was close. I just dont appreciate the lack of attention even after i paid for my sx yesterday.


Ask for the iron IV.... Hope it all works for u

Hope it all works out for you

I guess she wants u t finish d 5 days of treatments first b4 any consultation. Cos if ur hemo don't go up -no surgery. Jst concentrate on ur treatments and juices for now.
