Making the right decision...



Recommended Posts

What made you come to the conclusion that the VSG was for you? How did you decide that you were making the right decision? Knowing that your life would change forever, how did you prepare yourself for this?

I knew it was right for me because I didn't want any objects in my body...the thought if losing a huge portion of your stomach is frightening but it beats the alternative...growing health conditions and trouble sleeping and walking

when i started searching wls I had 3 choices bypass which had long term mal-absorption problems and stretching of the pouch, lap band which was a foreign object in my already hypersensitive body not to mention it can slip , erode your esophagus, last was vsg , leak infection but no future issues. I made my final decision on what my future would be like with wls. everyone is different though. My Mom wants to get lapband because it is not permanent if something goes wrong she can reverse it. I think that's the scariest part about vsg its non-reversable. That is what I wanted a permanent solution that required little maintenance and complications. Good luck on what ever surgery you choose :)

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
