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)

Minnie Me in TN

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")
