What to expect after your procedure…
Once in your hotel room...
Once in your hotel room, you can begin your recovery process, and this means to rest. Dr. Bustamante will call you a couple of hours later to check on you and make sure you are feeling ok. This is also a great time to ask him anything that concerns you; questions about your medication, if what you are feeling is normal, do’s and don’ts, etc. If you have questions about your immediate post-op diet you can always call Linda or let your Coordinator know so she can help you get a hold of any of the doctors or medical staff members 24/7.
Dr. Bustamante or the physician on call, will make a medical visit (at your hotel) and follow up on you to make sure your recovery process is right on track. Feel free to ask anything that is concerning and make sure you communicate everything that you feel no matter how simple or insignificant, never withhold information from your doctor. Let him know if you have pain, nausea, cramps; although these symptoms are expected.
It's time to go home!
Know that you can always reach out to Dr. Bustamante, Linda, or Giovanna for support and guidance. Remember to “Stay Honest” as you have come a long way and made a huge sacrifice to be where you are. Dr. Bustamante and the Be Better Bariatrics staff are as successful as your commitment to the process and to yourself.
You are never alone, we are always here to support you!
