Springbrook here! It is a itty bitty little town between Hayward and Spooner. Where is everyone having their procedures done at? I am planning on having mine done at Aspirus in Wausau, WI.

Hello from Wisconsin. I live in Mayville just west of Madison. I had my RNY last Monday at Aurora in Summit WI. Everything went great and I'm feeling great.

Hi KathyN14. I'm from Racine. I'm just starting this process and looking into doctors. I have been looking at Elmbrook Memorial and Dr. Chaing. Have you heard anything about him? What made you decide on Columbia St. Mary's?

I chose Dr. Regan after researching bariatric drs. He was one of the few that my insurance covered and I saw excellent reviews on him. I was thoroughly happy with everything about my experience from his office staff to the nursing staff at the hospital. I would recommend him to everyone!!

Thanks for the info, Dorian. I'll check him out. I had my first appointment with Dr. Chaing today. I'm not sure he is the right one. What kind of followup did Columbia have? How often do they have groups? I'm hoping to get a lot of support since I don't have any at home.

I'm from Wisconsin, about 45mins north of Milwaukee near West Bend. I'm just starting this process, I've researched many of the Dr's in the area and still not sure who I'll choose. Pretty confident that I want the Sleeve procedure. I would love to hear everyone's thoughts.. So far Dr. Regan with Columbia St. Mary's is my favorite--he's got great bedside manner yet still is on his game. Negative thoughts are welcome as well!

Thanks to you all, I hoping to find other ladies having the surgery to talk to, float ideas off of, and most of all support each other in this process.

Kathy

Hi PIxers,

I am still in the approval stages, but I am going through the Veterans Administration to get it done. I am sorry I wasn't of much help.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
