    Hello, I had VSG Surgery on 4/4/17. I am being treated for a staple line leak and may need either a stent or revision to bypass. I have been on feeding tube for 3 weeks and am very thirsty and hungry. I have not lost anything while being on feeding tube. Does anyone have any experience with this? Can anyone recommend a good surgeon at Kaiser, West Los Angeles?
