9 Months out of Surgery

The surgery itself was so easy! From my first contact with the staff of OCC till now months later they a great to deal with.

 

 

About 11 years ago my then to-be wife and I decided that we wanted to get married and have more children and we both realized that it would be hard for both of us and almost impossible for me to be the father and husband I wanted to be. We wanted to also be happier and healthier together so we made the decision to get lap bands. I was at 516 lbs when I started my diet for the lap band surgery in 10/7/2010 all went well for many years. I lost hundreds of lbs of weight and then during the pandemic, I realized that my band was not as effective as it once was and I gained back about 30 lbs in a sixth-month stretch and decided that I would look for a surgeon that had a lot of experience and a great record to do a revision and take out my band and do a sleeve at the same time. So I made the decision to go for it and their next appointment was 5 weeks from when I contacted them. Everything to do with surgery was a breeze.

From my first contact with the staff of OCC till now months later they a great to deal with. I contacted them because I was thinking about the surgery and they sent me the info and pricing, then one of the actual surgeons called me to answer my questions and concerns. I was satisfied with the info so I decided to pay and move forward. All questions I had were answered in a timely fashion and all info was easy to follow. Ordered some pre and post-operative supplements and bought plane tickets and I was off for surgery. The follow-up is almost daily online with the same people you meet at the OCC center. There was not one person I interacted with that was not super nice and helpful. I have never in my life been to a hospital setting where every single person was kind and helpful with a smile on their face at all times. Surgery is so much better when you are treated like family. I was a tough case and took way longer than expected but still up and walking a short time after the surgery. I have had many surgical procedures but the meds used made a huge difference in the recovery for me. Follow up was great and now back at home and they are still checking on me months after surgery. I would recommend OCC to anyone to get this procedure. Thanks to doctor Ortiz and his staff of as I call them his family. Now before this surgery prep, I was at 317 and now down to 261 on my way to the goal of 197lbs is what they have told me. I feel great and it is way easier dealing with this surgery than a lap band. I have always looked forward to the future and now even more so as every day, I get closer and closer to my goal.
