Cheri Shares Her Gastric Bypass Revision Surgery Story (VIDEO)

Rate This

Cheri describes her gastric bypass revision surgery and recovery.

After surgery, my gastric bypass recovery from surgery went actually very, very well. It was the best surgery I had been through. Dr. Dahiya was able to perform it laparoscopically, which was a miracle for me. I never thought that I’d ever be able to have any abdominal laparoscopic surgery. Because of that, my pain level was moderate, and before, I was in such severe pain because I had open procedures five times, and it’s very painful for them to open you up.

So, I was on my feet that night after the procedure. The next day I was up and moving around, and the hospital staff is trying to find me; I am working the halls, walking back and forth, feeling good, you know, drinking some things that I was able to drink and just having a good time, visiting with other patients. I felt good from the start and I have natural energy and zest for life and I am able to share that with people. That’s a big part of it for me.

I was able to be on my own very quickly; I’d say within the first week. I had a little bit of help just to monitor, just to make sure that I was able to take care of things, and since I live alone, I needed to be able to get in and out of bed comfortably, and I did. It was fine. I didn’t have any problems, and I was able to go back to work within a few weeks and renewed pretty much everything within about six weeks. I was back to full speed, full speed ahead, and I like that. And that’s how I like to live life is full speed ahead, and I couldn’t have done it without Dr. Dahiya’s support, his staff, and I cannot say enough kind words about it, and I wish you luck.
