Hi thanks for the insite, ya I was going to have lap band done and than lady that I have been working with that works for Dr Corvala told me about this. It really sounds good to me cause I love pepsi and I was told there is less complications, like leaking and erosion and slippage like the lap band. I have only heard from 1 lady who has had it and she seems to be loosing weight and doing fine. I just wish that it wasnt a bran new surgery cause thats my biggest concern on how it will do after a few years and stuff.

Ms Lisa:

There is a thread on this site about the Plication surgery...you can read up....

Total Gastric Vertical Plication Sleeve Surgery - Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery (VSG) Forum

I had Plication with Dr. Corvala on July 15th. I weigh in every Friday (trying to avoid becoming addicted to the scale) and as of last Friday I had lost 18lbs in 2 weeks.

The surgery leaves you a sleeve-like stomach. The post-op diet is very similar to that of a traditional sleeve. The Dr. expects me to reach my personal milestones in the first year.

I had an awesome bounce back recover.

Take a read at my blog (http://mission-no-fa...gspot.com/)...I post a few times a week with how I'm feeling, wheat I'm doing and eating. I also have a few pictures of the hospital room etc.

PM if you want specific details ...... best of luck, you'll love Dr. Corvala and Angeles Hospital.....the downside is that you don't have your surgeon in town to go to post-op visits, etc. But they have been awesome in answering my questions when I call....and I think I've called with random questions 1-2/week......:blushing:



Thank you for writing, i have a lot of questions for you if you dont mind can i email you? please email me my email is sisterlisa@live.com I would love to talk to you:001_smile:
