Does anyone who is pre-op or post-op watch YouTube channels that talk about WLS? During my research, I have watched a few people's channels, and they have been very informative for a person like me who is in the very beginning stages of WLS. If anyone has some YouTube channels they watch, please feel free to share.

Just passing along the information....

Dr. Duc Vuong

Clusie L

Dr. Matthew Weiner (more of the technical and medical perspective about WLS)

Oh, great post!!!! I watch a few of these people. Clusie is my favorite and were both Virgos, lol. Dr. V is brutally honest and I operate in honesty. I just started watching a few of the others who are very informative and were consistent. I'm watching more as I get closer, I love research and it gives me an outlet to feel as if I'm talking about it and asking questions I wouldn't even know to ask. I feel fortunate between BP and YouTube WLS videos.

Love Dr Vuong! I definitely watched YouTube videos pre-OP and in the beginning post op. Glad I did but glad I have moved on from my obsessive research. Now I al just paying attention to my body and go with the flow.

Dr. Vuong no longer performs surgery. He sells MLM products (pyramid scheme) to vulnerable people who are easier to rip off.

There are few things more corrosive to my opinion of a person than hearing them pitch an MLM. A lot of folks are just naive, but this move by Dr. V. just seemed so calculated. What kind of person does that? Nobody I want to take any sort of advice from, at the very least.

He's not interested in his patients, he simply wants to be famous for being a surgeon! He's narcissistic and greedy. He's no longer employed as a dr anywhere due to ethical, medical and legal issues! He no longer does MLM products. Looks like nobody wants him. Right now he's motivational speaker/influencer on YouTube in order to make some money. SUUM CUIQUE (latin for "to each his own")

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
