HWW and Gastric Sleeve


Hello My name is Morgan Black and I am a 24 Year old CNA. I received the gastric sleeve surgery (gastroplasty) on November 2, 2012 I have currently lost 67 lbs. and am still losing about 10 lbs a month. When I arrived in San Diego there was a kind man waiting there for me holding a sign with my name on it. We then went and got in his vehicle and he took us straight to the hospital to sign in. I went in and got signed in and went straight to my room. Everyone is so nice there and everything was so clean. The floors amazed me, pure white with not a spot on them…. I was so nervous when I got there, that I immediately had to ask where the bathroom was :/, but soon after that I met so many people, who I became well acquainted with, that I quickly calmed down. When I got to my room the Dr. came in and talked to me while the nurses started my IV. Everything went to quick before I knew it I was in the operating room and back in my room sleeping 🙂 that night I drag my IV pole around everywhere the only pain I had at that point was gas pains and nausea. The next day the Dr.  asked me to drink a small amount of liquid so that he could x-ray my stomach to make sure there was no leak. Everything was all done then. We stayed in Mexico one more night after that and then we were on our way home. The hospitality shown to me while I was there was unbelievable. I have never met so many people with great attitudes and willingness to help. I would recommend my own family and friends to see the Dr.  if need be in the future. I have had an awesome experience. I was glad to be home when I arrived so that I could get some rest after a 10 hr flight, but I was back up and working in the yard within 3 days 🙂 …


Sincerely, Morgan
