Has anyone experienced a doctor that tried to push you in the direction of the sleeve over the full DS surgery? I received new paperwork for an appt that said I was being setup for the sleeve, so I anticipate having to meet with him and lay out why I want the full ds instead. Figured I would see if anyone else here has experienced this....

Yes and I left the practice lol. Actually, I was never told my surgeon only does vsg. I found out after a Bariatric class...my new surgery group are pro ds and sips. I will speak to your doctor and let them know what you want!

Well, I know he does the full DS, but I don't want to go to another practice because it will screw my insurance and cost me a crapton of money. I just don't get why he is trying to push one over the other, when I have many reasons why i want the full DS, not the least of which is to avoid a second damn surgery.

So, just to update, the patient advocate called a little while ago to let me know that the Dr has approved the full switch surgery after looking through the information given on why I wanted to do that. Have my last classes this week, and then everything goes into insurance. Since my wife works for the hospital where it will be done and I am on her insurance, that just means waiting on a date, wooohoo!!

      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!
