I've spoken to many people who had complications with VSG GERD reflux and slow weight loss..

Curious if anybody wish they choose RNY but for some reason insurance won't cover?

Have a friend in that position!

Why are doctors pushing VSG?

Ugh. So really, I thought your question was genuine. I thought you were genuinely seeking feedback. But it turns out, because you already know everything -- you knew "the answer" to this question before you asked it. You were looking to set people up and receive some "bias confirmation." LOL.

*sigh* I sure hope everything goes textbook with your surgery and you have no complications...I fear if you have to contend with any, you will be one hot angry miserable mess.

Good lord. You can't even see that you set the whole forum up with the question and came across as someone who knows better than everyone else and that you were just waiting to trip them up and confirm your own position?

Well, ok then...moving on...

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
