LTVSG has an amazing doctor I am just not comfortable with the coordinator and hearing that he may be doing some shady things worried me so I decided not to go with them even though Dr. M is amazing.

I went with the basic package. After comparing the two the difference that I saw was a nutrition consult, a psychology consult, and spirometry... I didn't feel I needed those things. I can get set up with both a psychologist and nutritionist here so I went with the basic package. Anette the coordinator is really great and will talk to you about which package is best if you need. I found a girl on instagram that just recently went through ASlimmerme and she is beyond happy with her experience so I am even more comfortable with my choice and can't wait.

How is your experience so far? Are you pre or post op?. if you're pre op I would love to have a vsg partner.

It's been amazing so far. Anette and Lizette have been super responsive and helpful. I'm pre-op scheduled for May 18th (but fly in the day before to do pre-op testing). I'd love a partner!

Ok! I'll have to see if I can swing it that soon. How do you pay them? Can you pay before you go or are you supposed to go with cash in hand?

A deposit prior to hold your date (10%) that you pay by wire transfer or depositing it to their banks (Wells Fargo)... you can wire transfer the balance 1 week before surgery or take cash or cashiers check with you and pay when you get there. I'm not comfortable taking that much cash so I'll be doing a wire transfer or cashiers check.

Nice! So is the medicine after surgery included in the basic package? On the website when I looked it was listed only under the premium package.

It isn't... it's $150 for the meds in the basic package.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
