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!

Gastric Plication Surgery Forum

In sleeve plication (or gastric plication) most of your stomach pouch is folded away, leaving a sleeve from the throat to intestine. These forums are for talking about the sleeve plication procedure and recovery, diet, complications and weight loss.

Duodenal Switch Surgery Forum (New!)

The Duodenal Switch (BPD-DS) surgery reduces the size of your stomach size, divides your small intestine and redirects food so nutrient absorption decreases. These forums are for Duodenal Switch Surgery patients and those considering the surgery to talk about weight loss, diets, challenges, triumphs and complications.

Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery Forum (NEW)

Like the full gastric bypass, the mini gastric bypass (omega loop) surgery is restrictive from a smaller stomach pouch and malabsorptive from bypassing the first part of the small intestine. The difference is in the way the stomach pouch attaches to the small intestine. Use these forums to discuss the procedure, diet, risks, and weight loss.

Gastric Balloon & Endolumenal Bariatric Procedures Forum (NEW!)

The gastric balloon is an alternative to weight loss surgery for lower-BMI patients. It is an inflatable silicone balloon that helps fill the stomach so patients can eat less food and lose weight. This tool is scheduled for FDA approval in 2014 as nonsurgical tool to treat extreme obesity. Some examples of gastric balloons currently offered outside the USA are Easy Life, Duo by Reshape, Medsil, Allurion, Spatz, Endoball and Obalon.
