Main Forum Categories

Gastric Sleeve Surgery Forum

In a gastric sleeve surgery or vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG), the surgeon removes most of your stomach and forms the rest into a tube-shaped sleeve from your throat to your small intestine. These forums are for sleevers, potential sleevers and revisional sleevers! Talk about the VSG diet, nutritional supplements, weight loss and sleeve complications.

Gastric Bypass Surgery Forum

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is restrictive and malabsorptive. You get a smaller stomach pouch, which attaches lower down your small intestine. In these forums, talk about dumping syndrome, nutrient deficiencies, weight loss, the bypass diet and complications. Forums are for pre-WLS patients and those already have the RYGB.

LAP-BAND Surgery Forum

The adjustable gastric band (LAP-BAND) is a less invasive type of weight loss surgery that works through restricting your stomach size. Discuss LAP-BAND related topics such as fills, LAP-BAND diets, nutritional supplements, complications and band over bypass. Share your experiences and be supportive!

General Weight Loss Surgery Forum

Talk about anything related to weight loss surgery, such as choosing a surgery and surgeon, preparing for surgery, pre-surgery and post-surgery diets, food & nutrition, weight loss, exercise, cosmetic and reconstructive Surgery, and mental challenges. Exchange recipes, find weight loss surgery buddies, get exercise advice, ask about cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and share your weight loss surgery story! Also contains the Duodenal Switch and Gastric Plication Surgery Forums.
