Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty



Recommended Posts

I have a surgery date! Or should I say "Procedure" date, since it is non-surgical. My ESG is scheduled for September 8th. My insurance has approved it and I'm so excited!!

Any info on expectations or certain foods/drinks that you all have are appreciated!

Yes, they're paying 90% and I pay 10%. I'm having it done at U of Chicago and it's a $10,000 (all-inclusive) procedure. My Doctor said there won't be any additional fees for anesthesia or meds or anything else as long as there aren't any complications.

EW, where do you buy that from?? I'm going to try the Premier Protein ones from Sam's Club and see how they taste. I have a friend that swears by those. Any other helpful foods or tips? I did buy some 3-compartment meal trays to pre-package my weighed meals OneRx I'm on regular foods. That way on Sunday's I can weigh everything out and count my calories.

CONGRATS!!! Hang on you are going for one heck of a journey!!! One thing I would suggest don't buy a lot of any thing Protein Drinks because most people's taste change. I would really hate to know how much $$I spent on Protein drinks I'm sure it was lots of dollars!! Luckily, my nephew is into healthy drinking and eating!! At least it wasn't wasted!! Again YAY YAY!!!

Thanks Shedo! And good to know! I wish that I would've read this before I went shopping yesterday, lol. I went to Sam's Club and bought the chocolate and vanilla Protein drinks there. They're 30 grams of protein.

Do any of you have any info like paperwork that describes examples of meal ideas for the first few days and beyond? I would love to see it if possible. I can give you my email or you can text it to me if that's easier.

Shedo - Yes it is fairly new. And only being done in a handful of clinics in our country. It is being taught to physicians more and more, so it will become as common as the other gastric surgeries very quickly.
What really entices me is that it is outpatient, only takes about 45 mins, less invasive and you don't have to go through the multiple pre-op specialist appointments like you do with the more invasive gastric surgeries.

Thank you! My daughter is overweight and has a full-time job and 4 kids. This might be just what she needs. Please keep me posted on this. Also, did you mean the US? Thank you again.

Yes, it is non-surgical and all done through your mouth, like when you go in for an upper GI. I'm having it on a Friday and hope to be working on Monday.

Yes, I'm in the US. I'm having mine done in Chicago.

This is very exciting to have discovered a thread of others having done this procedure or those that have it scheduled. So hard to find info about this online!! I have mine scheduled for September 28 2pm at UCI (university of California Irvine). I have three kids and have struggled to drop the baby weight after the third baby. My BMI is about 31. I've tried every thing to lose the weight and it just keeps coming back. I'm so excited for this procedure AND nervous and would love to connect via email or better yet on the phone with anyone that has already had the procedure done and would be willing to talk! Belle3

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
