    Considering ESG

    Hello - I’m only 25 days out and just started soft foods in the last few days. I haven’t eaten much at one time so haven’t “tested” the restriction. I was fortunate to have an easy recovery (mostly just exhausted the first few days) and have had no issues at all. I’ve lost 20.5 lbs so I’m very happy so far. I was not a good candidate for VSG so this was a perfect option for me. Best wishes for whichever path you choose.

    Considering ESG

    Thanks so much for the quick reply and information. That's very helpful. You confirmed my initial gut feeling based on what I've read about Dr. Blosser. He's ten minutes from my house, but not sure if it's even worth my time to do the consult. I've read many amazing things about Dr. McGowan and seen some of his videos so he is at the top of my list. If you don't mind, I'm going to try to figure out how to send you a private message with a couple questions. I'm very new to this whole idea - had not even heard of ESG until just this last week, but immediately thought it sounded right for me. Thanks again for the info! Hope you are healing well and happy with your decision.

    Hi there. I saw in a later post that you had the ESG procedure recently. Did you go with Dr. Blosser in Reston? I live in the area and my doctor gave me his name so I’m considering a consult. I’m curious to hear your experience and who you ended up using. Hope you are feeling better and well on your way to crushing goals!
