2 months after treatment

I was looking for sleeve gastrectomy surgery. I saw Dr. Mustafa Atabey on Newlyme

My process has been a bit difficult. I had an operation seven years ago. During that surgery, there was a problem with my gastric valve and it was going to be fixed, but it was a wrong operation and it came out during the operation. 

I had a sleeve gastrectomy, it was a painful process because I had two surgeries at the same time. It was a ten-day process. I feel very tired and sluggish during these ten days, but I am satisfied with my surgery and my doctor. 

I'm in recovery, it's been nine days since the surgery. I was in the hospital for three or four days and then I came home. I'm at home now, I'm a little tired, I have vitamins and I'm taking them. I'm going to start working with a dietitian. 

For the first ten days, I was consuming completely liquids. Compote, chicken soup, broth, anything made without coloring with any vegetables. After 10 days, I switched to drinking soup. After 1 week of drinking soup, I will have a puree period. The cost was a little high as it was two surgeries at the same time. 

Thank goodness I'm fine, my doctor said it went very well, but as I said, I had a very painful process. It suddenly snowed, I had to walk but I couldn't, you know, it snowed a lot in Istanbul. I walked as much as I could down the hall at home. Towards the end of February, I will go to the gym and there I will be able to walk slowly on the treadmill, at least I will have someone with me when I feel weak. I will call you in February. I want to continue with an affordable dietitian for 1-2 months. 

By the way, thank you very much in advance.
