Hi, I had my DS surgery on December 13th, 2018. It was performed by Dr Jon Bruce, MD of WakeMed Bariatric Specialists Of NC In Cary, NC. I had lost 20 lbs prior to surgery and have lost 50lbs since surgery. Dr Bruce is the best! While in there doing my surgery, he spotted something on my liver, took a biopsy, sent it off and it came back stage 4 cirrhosis of the liver! If not for him, I would have never known it. I have to go see a liver specialist next month for options. Please pray for me! Thanks in advance!

Glad your experiences with Dr Bruce went well. My wife has a totally different experience with that crook. He didnt explain squat to my wife on what the requirements were all along for the total year she went through his half ass program. WHEN IT CAME TIME TO HAVE THE SURGERY THE INSURANCE COMPANY DIDNT QUALIFY HER FOR THE SURGERY!!! I blame it 100% on his practice and wasted tons of money for visits to him. Glad you had better resuts!!

I I am doing good. Definitely still learning. I find I can tolerate some foods sometime nd then the next day...they make me sick. However, overall pretty good.

I can imagine that is frustrating to experience. I am good feeling a little low energy this afternoon while on my pre-op diet, but only two more days after today of this diet and 3 days till surgery.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
