I started off my journey weighing 275 lbs with a BMI of 46. I went to the Seminar at the end of September with the intentions of getting the LapBand surgery, however sitting through the Seminar and receiving all the information from Dr. Curry I left the seminar very interested in the Gastric Sleeve Surgery. Everyone was very helpful, and I got insurance approval pretty quickly. The dieticians gave me wonderful information, and I felt ready to have the procedure. On Nov. 21st I had the gastric sleeve surgery, the pre-surgery nurses were absolutely amazing, very comforting & eased my nerves quickly. After surgery care was great, I had to stay for 24 hrs then went home after keeping down some jello, and sipping on water. I did end up having complications the following week, and became very ill. With just one phone call to Dr. Curry he had me at my local hospital getting a CT Scan checking for any issues. The scan showed an abscess, Dr. Curry immediately sent me to Jewish Hospital where he began treating me. He was wonderful, very personable & I felt very thurough. From what I understand I fall in the small percentage of anyone having complications, but would like to say that I felt like I remained in good hands. After 2 hospital stays & a few months of home health care I can finally say I am so glad I had this surgery. I am down 90 lbs in a matter of 5 months, my BMI was 33 at my last appt. and I am wearing the same size jeans as when I graduated in 1996 🙂 Maybe my complications would discourage some people, but I would still speak up for Dr. Curry, NP Lisa, and his staff, they took great care of me, and I am grateful ! Thanks Dr. Curry for giving me my life back I’m happier now than I’ve been in years, and I can breath & tie my shoes at the same time !
