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!!

      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".
