I am 20 yrs old thinking about getting the DS. I just want to hear some of yalls stories and pros and cons and advice.

Check with your local surgeon’s office. Ask about an information seminar. They will go over all the procedures pro’s, cons, risks, and statistics. It’s a great place to start.

Hey! So I’m actually getting the process started. I just need the Physc evaluation done and that’s it :)

Oh, congratulations

You are close to getting a surgery date, or do you have one?

Hi. I guess I'd want to ensure that you're committed. By that I mean; for the rest of your life can you take 40+ pills a day (if required ), have blood tests done 2x a year (if required), get a Dexa bone scan yearly (if required), eat at least 100 gr.of Protein a day, deal with the gas and stool odors (which can be managed but if you don't, then they're difficult). Those are just some of the things I can think of off the top of my head . This isn't to discourage you at all. It's just to give you a real perspective of the DS.

Of course,the great thing about the DS is it has the best stats re: losing the most and keeping it off. I'm almost 14 years out and look exactly like I've always wanted to look.

      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".

      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!
