There are some people about who have. I did, but I had it done in the early days of it being done in Australia and there seemed to be be a high failure rate for the early ESG. Don't know what its like now. Seems to be a better rate of success for some done in USA.

I had my ESG in Oct 2018, I lost restriction within six months or so, i was in denial about losing the restriction and still sprouting how good ESG was for some time. In Feb2020 an endoscopy showed that most of the sutures had come out or loosened. I converted to VSG in March 2020, best thing ever!

If you proceed with ESG, make sure the doctor has done many of them (at least in the high 100s or even in the 200s). You want to know the success/failure rate one year and two years out for their patients..

Average weight loss is generally lower than the surgical options as volume of the stomach 'remaining' is greater than the surgical options.

If I could do that time period all over, I would forego the ESG and go straight to VSG.
