Hi everyone!

SW: 327

CW: 265

GW: 175

I've never heard of that procedure. Good luck on your journey.

Not sure if you noticed the original post was from 2017. Not sure if the OP is still around. If you don’t get a reply you may have better luck creating a new post about the Sasi (which I’ve never heard of till now). Good luck.

Hey friend… yes, I saw she was last logged on in 2019. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Stranger things have happened you know…. It’s a newer procedure from what I gather, only 3 places can do it in the US of A. It’s out patient so less recovery time.

Have you had any of the procedures done?

I had the sleeve six months ago. I was in hospital overnight but probably didn’t need to be. I was one of the lucky ones that didn’t have a lot of post op pain. I think my doctor doesn’t use the air they pump in your belly cause I had absolutely no gas pain.

Yaay! How are you feeling. The sasi is done same as the endoscopy so in through the mouth…. I really didn’t want any incisions so hopefully this works! Glad you are feeling well. Anything I should know you think!?

Well anyone can see this post and will see it’s about sasi so technically they can chime in but if you want to start a new one you just select “start new topic.”

I am feeling great. I was a lower BMI to start and i am a bit of a slow loser but I’ve lost 55 pounds and hit my first goal. Only 20 more pounds and I will be at my actual goal. That’s awesome they go through the mouth. My scars are pretty small (all smaller than an inch) but still no scars is better of course. And no incisions seems like less risk.

I haven’t heard about the sasi done with endoscopy. That’s cool! Mine was by keyhole surgery

Oh my gosh! You wrote back! Thank you! Thank you!

yes it’s done by endoscopy now - totally out patient. I was wondering if you did it as a first surgery or revision I’m doing it as a first - surgeons okay with this! Did you notice weight loss right away, same as other surgeries or is it slower but more permanent ( this is how I understand it)

What do you wish you had known Before? Did you loose your hair?

I’m paying for it out of pocket so 🤦‍♀️ Yikes! Would you still choose this one over any other surgeries! I was pretty much sold on the outpatient aspect but I’m wondering why not many places do it?

I have to fly out of the state I live in to get it done! Still within the Us but I would have liked for there to be something closer to me!

thank you again for getting back to me!

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
