Hello group! I'm new to the group. My Dr. (on Friday) suggested the surgery to control my Type2 diabetes. I have been unable to control my BS level or get it down with meds and many failed attempts to lose weight for the past 5-6 years since being diagnosed. My close friend since childhood had the surgery and is doing GREAT. I was excited when when Dr. actually recommended it for me. I made the first appt for the initial seminar at Cedars Sinai, it's this Saturday. Naturally I have a lot of questions but I'll save most of them for during the seminar and to the group later on as I get more info on the process. Not sure what else I should mention at this point of the introduction but this is a start =)

Hi Lisa and Welcome! Good for you to get this opportunity to improve your health!! You will get a lot of your questions answered at your seminar and when you meet with the myriad of medical professionals along the way. If you don't get something answered, there is a great Search Bar at the top of this page - you'll find so much useful information there too! Don't be shy - ask and you will receive great information here! It's quite the community!! Good luck to you and keep us posted!

Thanks Y'all! So far I'm just trying to learn my around this site and reading some posts.

At this stage of the game I could really use a good comeback for the lifetime skinny people I know who are already not afraid to tell me how wrong this surgery is because apparently they're all experts on weight loss and MY diabetes. Ugh!
