Hi all - new to the forum. I have my ESG scheduled for the 17th July in England and I can't wait :). I have started my pre-op diet and it is hard, especially as I haven't told anyone outside of my family about this - so I have been making excuses not to see friends "for dinner". I am still slightly worried that I should be doing the VSG and not the ESG but I am hoping I will get the same results, even if they take a bit longer. Can I ask what the weight loss results have been for ESG with other people? There is still so little information around on it, it seems to only be done in the US, Australia, Germany and the UK by a handful of surgeons....

I had my ESG seven months ago (early December 2017) in Manhattan, and so far I've lost 45 pounds (from 250 down to 205), which I'm told is better than average.

Thanks for the info James - congrats on your weight loss, that is very impressive.

Hey ESG_Gal how did your procedure go? Still feeling any gas pain?

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
