Sorry 😐 if this already exist somewhere on these forums. Just tag me if you find them. I have my first telehealth visit with a potential surgeon this Thursday ( 6/4/20) . I am considering ESG. What are some questions I should be asking? Thank you.

How many ESGs have they done? How many complications? How many failures? Of what they consider successes how long were those people followed up for? What is the average weight loss with ESG after one year and two years? If the sutures loosen or come undone within the first two years (through no fault of yours) will they repair free of charge? Is there anyone they wouldn't do an ESG on and why?

ESG is about technique and skill if the doctor hasn't done many ESGs I would be giving them a definite miss.

You will see from my signature that I have had an ESG but now have a surgical sleeve, happy to answer questions you have.
