    Hello I’m sorry to hear this, I will be honest i have zero restriction and haven’t in quite some time, in my opinion Esg only helped for about 6 months or so. I so far have had success with the Keto diet and that is how I’ve been losing weight. I wish you luck and God bless

    PinkMints got a reaction from GreenTealael in EGS to Gastric sleeve   
    Has anyone had a endoscopic gastric sleeve and the. Ended up getting the transitional gastric sleeve sorry if I’m wording this strangely. I got EGS done about 8 months ago lost 40 and gained back 15 I feel no restriction and I feel like it was a waste of money, might work for some but not for me! I’m not sure if I even qualify for Gastric sleeve as my bmi is under 40 but if anyone has gone through this advice is greatly appreciated!

    You know what I tried today I thought was the perfect soft food correct me if I’m wrong but star bucks has the new sous vide egg wrapped in bacon once you throw out the bacon it’s just a fluffy scrambled egg with a touch of cheese it’s amazing it come with two and they were my Breakfast lunch and dinner lol

    When did you stop being scared that a stitch was gonna burst or is it just me? My surgeon keeps reminding me not to push it as they can pop (not that I would ever do something like that I’m still on the soft food stage one month out of ESG, but would love to hear if any of you felt the same !

    PinkMints reacted to Dezurpaul in Answer my concerns please   
    I really like the fact that this procedure has helped a variety of people. Although I would like some feedback on a certain thing. My niece is 21 and would like to have this procedure. But.....she has thyroid issues and not taking meds, she has not tried other sources of weightloss. And I wonder that it being in Mexico when everyone is advised even vacationers this is a bad time to go there for anything. Also if you can't stick to a diet, how are you going to stick with liquids and such. I know u will get sick if u don't but I feel at her age this is a fast cure all, especially when nothing else has been done. Down the road when something happens where do you go with no insurance. Please someone ease my mind as I'm sure she's going to do it anyway and if that's what makes her happy so be it but please answer my worries and concerns.

    Lol it so hard, I still don’t know what it feels like to be full I’m terrified to eat more than a few bites although sometime I still feel “hungry” idk, is there ever a chance of the stitches not popping or is this something we deal with forever my surgeon didn’t make it clear to me !
