    That’s not true for everyone. I didn’t have diarrhea during my liquid diet.

  5. Hi hk1100, I had MGB survey outside the US on 12/12/16. Bile Reflux - in my research before surgery, I found that most MGB patients do not suffer with bile reflux. Surgeons who are really experienced with MGB can make sure their patients don’t experience bile reflux. Foul-smelling stool - all bariatric surgeries cause both foul-smelling stools and gas. For some people, taking probiotics can help with that. But it is a trade off for being healthier. Malnutrition - most MGB patients don’t suffer from malnutrition as long as they follow their surgeon’s post-op instructions. Other than vitamin patches, I’m not doing anything extra other than making sure I get my protein and fluids. I would recommend MGB surgery to anyone looking into having weight loss surgery.

  7. That really wasn’t science. That was a statement. So you really didn’t say anything. I don’t need to do any homework. I have lived exercising and weight training for longer than you’ve been out of high school. I have worked with personal trainers on and off for years. And... most importantly, I have experienced it for myself. I physically saw a reduction of my loose skin after I started working out and as I continued to work out, still losing weight, but not increasing in loose skin as I would have had I not been exercising. That’s my science. My life. Say what you want, but nothing beats real life experiences. So...unless you’re going to call me a liar, respect that I know what happened to my body, and I have seen countless posts from people like me who have experienced the exact same results. I’ve been here for a while, way before I had surgery in 2016.

  9. Sorry. That’s not science. Show me the science please. I’ll wait...

    Cannot stick to pre op diet

    Any good surgeon will abort a surgery if the liver has not shrunk enough. The surgeon won’t put his patients’ life in danger.

  15. Well you may notice that this thread is over 4 years old. I might look for another more recent thread before making your decision to go with this doctor.

    You are not alone...but you CAN DO IT! Remind yourself that if your liver is too big your surgeon won’t do the surgery. It’s that important. Why go through all this to end up not getting the surgery? YOU CAN DO THIS!!

    Supplement patches

    Yes. I have been using patches since I got home after the surgery. I have had blood work and it has come back completely normal. Please don’t believe articles that state that vitamins don’t absorb through the skin. They are saying that because they are being paid by one or more vitamin companies and don’t want you to buy the patches. I am almost 11 months out.

  21. I’m 5’7” and my heaviest weight was 298 and I wore size 22ish. I had mini gastric bypass on 12/12/16. I am now 138 and wear size 4-6. I figured I would be able to wear a size 6 or 7 but a size 4? I can wear my daughter’s clothes!!!

    Failure...

    Eating a lot of carbs will definitely not help you lose weight. I agree that using a food tracking app will help you to see what you are eating and make the necessary changes to start weight loss. I also agree that you need to see your nutritionist and come up with a plan to correct your eating habits for long term weight loss.

  25. Actually, the only dangerous person I see on here is you. Go to who you want to. But there is more than enough proof that this doctor does not care about his patients. Just because you are one of the very few who are ok is not proof that he is a good doctor.
