Although it is a bit more difficult when you don't speak the native tongue, JC was very professional and streamlined. Surgery only took 45 minutes and I was up and walking within hours of it! The 2nd and 3rd day was a bit rougher as far as being sore but I have had no vomiting or complications. After 53 years of battling my weight and every diet known to mankind, I am finally doing something positive for ME. Something to regain my health and get a new lease on life. A big thanks to the JC team!
