    Mines 8/31/16 and I'm excited but so nervous with all the different postings. I just have to take the negatives out of my head and pray. I just don't want any complications. Pain I can handle

    C-Section vs. VGS surgery

    If you survived c-section, you will do fine with the sleeve.

    What's a good protein drink?

    Premier Protein is the best. Can be purchased by the case at Costco or BJs. Strawberry, vanilla and chocolate favors. GREAT TASTING!!!
  16. Has anyone experienced knee pain relief from the sleeve surgery. My ortho doctor suggest for me to do WLS first before knee surgery (if necessary). Said it was risky with my weight so he suggested bariatric surgery as he thinks it will help with my weight and knee pain. HELP!!!

    April 27th VSG DATE

    NY area. My MDs are very thorough. I have HTN and my BMI is high so they just want to make sure I am well enough to do the sleeve. So far so good. I don't mind the process.
