Less than a week and worried about Covid shutdown in Gastric Sleeve Surgery Forums Posted September 5, 2021 On 8/25/2021 at 3:48 PM, vikingbeast said: I am obsessively monitoring the case rates in my county, which have gone down a little bit, but school started. My VSG is scheduled for 9/14 and I am desperately hoping they don't shut things down. My spies in the ER say things are busy but not panic-inducing. All I can do is light a candle and pray to whoever the patron saint of fat people is. My surgery is 9/14 too. I have the same fear.
