The best decision I ever made!

In Feb 2014 I decided to do weight loss surgery took option class with Kaiser in Orange , After completing the 12 step which end up in end of May I was all ready to meet with my surgeon and set up pre op and surgery date of 7/16/2014 . My highest weight was 260 day of surgery 247 & today I am 228.9 a little over 30lb weight loss but I have lost a lot of inches I had no problem with pain, gas & nausea or vomiting and after first week I was told by my surgeon to start puree food for 6 week . It has been a little over 3 weeks but I already feel great and fit into the clothes that I was wearing 2 years ago and I feel great.

A Selfie after 4 weeks !

Dr. Edward C Mun

Dr . Edward C Mun at Kaiser South Bay Medical Center did a great job , my surgery time was at 2pm by 11:00 pm I was already up & walking without any pain.

I think your photos are gorgeous! And it's very inspiring, to fit into clothes from 2 years ago! That must feel pretty darn good!

Owjo11 - Well done and an overall 30 lb loss is a good loss! Thanks for sharing your story, I particularly like the ones that have no pain, gas or nausea, gives me hope for my surgery on October 24. Keep us updated please....

I bought the Gas X strips and as soon as I got into my room I put one in my mouth and used 2 box and never felt any problem with gas after so make sure to buy one and take it with to the hospital .
