DFW Bariatrics and General Surgery - Sachin Kukreja, MD


I am having a very hard time with GAS! No matter what I take it doesn't seem to help! I am also starting to have pain in my lower right side! Any suggestions as to what may help!
For some of you, when did y'all started noticing hair loss? I've been losing a lot of hair and I already have fine hair and it's now obvious. It's making me super depressed and insecure. Any suggestion on what would help that is safe to take would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Can I take all 4 of these (2 chewable/2 gummy) around the same time? I took 2 chewables and the calcium bites say to take 2 hours after iron. I didn’t see iron listed the chewable label.
Pre surgery diet question.
If we can do the keto bag diet it states soft meats and non starchy veggies does that mean no fruits at all?
I have a couple of questions. I have been told I have a hernia, is that something that can be fixed during surgery? Does it exclude you from the ESG surgery?
I haven’t had my surgery yet it’s schedule for 11/23 but I just want to thank Tammy for all her hard work we were working side by side to get these insurance people to approve it it’s a really difficult process and takes a lot of time and patience thank you so much Tammy you are amazing and work so hard for all us trying to achieve our goal and everyone calling trying to speak to her be patient with her you guys she is doing her best
