Pamela Peeke, MD, MPH, FACP responded:
Hi and thanks for your posting. I'm concerned by your questions because your surgeon's team should be answering these for you and supporting you. All bariatric offices should have a registered dietitian who specializes in these procedures. As well, you're asking about medications being prescribed and adjusted (your BP meds) and this should be addressed by your medical team--- the gastric surgeon and/or your primary care physician.

Please get back with them today and start sorting this out. It doesn't sound as though you're clear on your plan post op and you should be.

Dr. Peeke
