Hi ! So I been doing so much research on the ESG procedure. I much prefer it to VSG . I found that Mexico Bariatric center will start performing this in March . I was able to get a date and I read up on the doctor who will be doing the procedure. While I am nervous I do like the idea of no scars and quicker recovery, I’m more nervous about having it done at at this facility. Please share any experience you’ve had at Mexico Bariatric center . Thank you

Never heard of that procedure. I just googled it https://www.brighamandwomensfaulkner.org/programs-and-services/cwmw/endoscopic-sleeve-gastroplasty Its interesting. I personally dont care about scars and the scars are so little since they are not slicing you wide open. Good luck with Mexico. I thought about going to Endobariatric center there to get my sleeve but decided against it.

In a side bar of The Forum menu , you will find a great raft of Mexico surgery hospitals and doctors. I thought about going there and the Covid came and I settled for Surgery at home

I am not sure how much weight you're planning to lose but with ESG weightloss is slower and not as much, about 15 to 20%, which isn't a lot especially for majority of us who fall under Obese category. So depends on your BMI and the goal you have in mind.

As for scars, laproscopic scarring is minimal and after a year or so, you won't even notice (I am sure many veterans here can vouch for it).

Regardless of what you choose, good luck with your journey.

RNY here - but I agree about the scars. I can't even see mine anymore. Maybe if I used a magnifying glass I could, but...

I’m 5’7 215lb BMI is 34 I think . I want to get to 150. I’m okay with a slower rate . I’m so afraid of the loose skin but it is what it is :)

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
