    Vsg is a restriction tool and will not necessarily reduce your cravings or get rid of your hunger. If you look through these forums you'll see that many people are still experiencing both hunger and cravings after surgery.
    Sorry to hear about your diarrhea. Personally I think having it pour out is better than being clogged up but that's just me.

    I don’t have the cravings issue I don’t sit around and salivate about eating cheese burgers. My issue was over eating because I used to be a super fast eater. The restriction is what I felt would work the best for me.

  2. Defiantly not interested in Gastric bypass. My doctor spoke to me about both procedures and the VSG seemed to be the best fit for me.. I have good eating habits just over eating issues. I don't suffer from Type 2 diabetes (have had some recent evolving issues) no severe sleep apnea, I don't really have any underlying heath issues except Thyroid and VSG will be my tool to help me suppress the craving's and help me loose weight.

    Your body is doing a cleanse. It's not enjoyable, but it's not harmful. Hope you don't have to remain far from the throne. Just keep with the program while your bowels continue to shake and bake. We'll be here for the good, the bad, and the not so pretty sounding.

    Starting weight: 400lb (understandable)

    Current weight: 400lb (understandable)

    Goal weight: 400lb (Are you sure about this one?)

    I see that your surgery is Dec. 19. How did you decide on the sleeve, if I may ask?

    And are you really 141 years old? (Check your profile page)

    Yeah I totally signed up and dove right into the forums reading thing's and forgot to get my profile right thanks for the heads up.. LOL

    My decision on the sleeve is really an easy one for me.. Most of my life I was into lifting and always carried my weight like a short stocky power lifter most weight being in the gut area... I was around 320 until 35 and suffered an accident that kept me away from the gym. That along with traveling a lot for my job living out of hotels at the time turned into bad habits and late night drunkin cheese burger sessions. I had recently started back up fast walking doing DDP yoga and watching my diet.. But I simply cannot eat enough to ever feel full. Not eating so much I feel sick or anything but i can put the food away and still feel hunger.. Plus my old age is not working with me and it's only going to get worse. My father and his father before him went thru the exact same thing in there early 40's. SO I think VSG can help cure the hunger issues and when I get back down to a lower weight help keep it off..

  4. Started my pre op Diet last Thursday and have been non stop Water factory out my rear end.. Diet is the basic 4-5 shakes a day broth water 2 cups of steamed veggies a day..
