The episode that was on Aussie TV last night was all about weight. One patient had extreme anorexia and the other patient needed to have his very successful bypass reversed because he had Crohn's disease. It was more dramatic because he had never told his husband that he used to be obese and had had a bypass.

I liked the first few episides but haven't watched in a while. Sounding more and more like House, MD (which I loved)

@elcee

The surgeons (on TV) working around patient in OR referred to WLS as the "easy way out"😠

I cringed loudly to myself - "i don't believe he just said that, a doctor""

I know, i couldn't believe it!!! "we" are all shocked, upset when we hear from our friends/family saying

"WLS is the easy way out" - but a Dr.?!! I know this is just a tv show - but many other "real" docs might feel the same way.

I guess the writers have their fingers on the pulse of our culture.

People still think it's elective to choose better health, by any means necessary...

Yes I cringed too. Unfortunately that is the popular perception. What would have been good would have been if someone had corrected him .

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
