Anyone had a DS in Louisiana or a PCP there that's familiar with the DS? I move to LA in a few days, but I'm only just over 2 months post-op. I'm terrified to leave my surgeon and his care, but this is happening! I need to find a new doc to monitor my bloodwork and make sure I don't get malnourished!

Maybe you could call the places that do DS's and ask about PCP's that are familiar with DS's. Will be having DS in Louisiana in a month or so waiting for insurance approval so I can get scheduled in. I think there are 3 or more doctors that perform this in Louisiana don't quote me but do believe some are doing the SADIS or SiPs DS not the traditional so make sure you tell them which one you have had done. Good luck my doctor never has messed with anyone with DS but has Rny has a very open mind so think I will be able to work with him

Greater New Orleans Metro. Who is your surgeon? Hope you're doing well with your recovery!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
