DS Surgery date 7/23/2019!



Recommended Posts

Ive struggled with my weight all my life, it judt seems like a never ending battle. I had a failed lap band and I've now been approved for the DS on July 23rd 2019.. I'm so excited about also extremely nervous!

I don't want to fail! I'm having anxiety dreams about being the only person to gain 25lbs a month after the surgery lol.

Any and all encouragement and advice is welcome!

Thank you!!

Lapband surgery has the lowest success of all the WLS so dont beat yourself up too much. In fact many have to have revision surgery because of it. In Sweden, they are doing revisions all the time due to the complications from lapband. (Sweden has tons of research on WLS surgery which is used around the wolrd. Since it's covered by universal healthcare the (anonymous) information is used for studies all the time. Patients also have the chance to participate in studies.)

So, I think DS will help you greatly. So chip up and go for it!

I also failed with the lap band, but have found great success with the DS. You'll find a whole new you staring back at you in the mirror a year after your surgery.

      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!
