Is this thread for DS and others, e.g., loop?



Recommended Posts

Greetings! I'm new here but want to know if this is the thread for discussing Loop DS. There are some forums that separate DS from the "other" DSs. Want to be sure I'm in the right place before posting! Many thanks.

You have come to the right place. Come on in get comfortable, kick off your shoes & lets talk about DS WLS. For me the Wife & I are up for Loop DS WLS this Tuesday the 17th, that’s right we are going for it on the same day. Our goal is to each lose approximately 200 lbs, with determination & hard work our Dr. advised to expect it to take approximately two years. So our journey has just began & may Gods encourage help us to achieve our goal & healthier life.

Welcome! I had the traditional DS in June and haven't looked back for even one second. It was the best decision I've ever made to turn my health around. I lose slowly, but the scale is headed in the right direction. I'm excited for you.

I had the Loop DS/SIPS procedure on July 17 so just hit my 3 month mark and I'm down 50 lbs. Obviously the weight loss is fantastic but even better is the amount of energy I have now - I didn't even know how fatigued I was until I had the surgery. best of luck!

Hello All, I had the Loop on 10/10/17. I am having a hard time finding people that had the loop and trying to find a safe place where people don't sit and criticize. :)

I had the loop 9/11/17. I completely understand. It is hard to find a place in the DS community where people don't give a hard time about the loop.

Welcome! What kind of criticism are you hearing? I know that there are some people who've had what they call the "full DS" or the "real" DS who are pretty fierce in their defense of the procedure. It's a real turn off and I haven't seen it happen here. My only disappointment with these boards is their relative inactivity. If anyone knows of another site that's busier, please share. In the meantime, would you mind sharing your story?
