Any Colorado sleevers?

Wow' date=' sorry about your stricture! I thought they were much more common with the bypass but I have heard of it happening with the VSG. I hope things are better now!

I'm working on it :) Feel better now that its dilated lol. But still having issues with food and fluids. But soon it will be worth it :)

Congrats on your surgery date! I have been very open with everyone around me about surgery and there are some who think it is "cosmetic," but the reality is that the decision to have it (and get it paid for by insurance) is always about health. The surgery really gave me my life back.

BTW, my maiden name is Appel. Do you know anything about your family tree...like where your last name came from? We were Czech. My great-grandfather immigrated first to France and he added the "e" to Appl so that the French could pronounce our name. He just kept the "e" in when he arrived in the US.

Welcome! There are a few of us here in the springs. I had my sleeve done 10/3 in Denver and I'm feeling great. It is a scary process with a lot of what ifs that come to mind but now that I'm on the other side I know how right my decision was.

Hi. I'm so glad to find this Colorado group. Just had my sleeve 12/17 in Dallas but live in Aurora. Are there support groups near me I might be able to join even though I didn't have my surgery here?

Hi Kiap82...I just sent you a PM. My surgeon allows anyone to join his support groups, you didn't have to have surgery with him to join. They are free, always.

I just sent you a PM with specific details, please let me know if you don't receive it. To post a Private Message to someone, click on their picture. That will take you to their profile, and then in the upper-right hand corner, you will see a choice to "send them a private message" fill out all the fields and click send. Make sure you include a title for your PM or I think it won't work.

I had my surgery on February 2 2012. I'm in Colorado Springs. I don't know I need a specific 'Colo' group is necessary, but I sure need someone to talk to and if I find you here, that'd be cool. Any takers?

Glad to have found this group. This is not the easiest site to navigate...at least not from the iPad app. I had my VSG on 12/18/13 with Snyder so 2 weeks post op. Look forward to connecting with everyone.

Hi Colorado! I'm in Denver and just started the process of getting a sleeve hopefully in April. I am going to Dr Brown...so far I like him...straight forward and a lot if experience. Slightly nervous that I haven't seen any more if his patients on here.

I have, unfortunately, spent this week eating like a crazy person...I need to reign it in and prepare for a new life

I was sleeved by Dr. Chae on 10/22/13, my HW 260, SW 252.4 and CW 213.7. There's a support group at St. Joseph on Monday night, it's a great place to ask questions.
