Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG)

Thursday, November 24, 2011

I have been struggling with my weight all of my life. I have considered surgery several different times in my life and decided against it. This time I changed my mind. I have been struggling so much with food intake. I have no problem going to the gym and working out 5 or 6 days a week, but for some reason, eating has been a battle for me. Well, I have been getting tired of the "battling" and started to feel defeated. This surgery will be a weapon for me to use to help tackle my weight. I have had some success with weight loss, but seem to regain it during rough patches. It is very difficult to be consistent. That will change with my sleeve.

My insurance has approved me and I will be getting surgery December 12th! Just 3 1/2 short weeks away! I am very excited, and a little nervous, but definitely happy with my decision. I will keep everyone updated through my blogs.

    Good luck! I'm so excited to see your results!!!

    May I ask what made you go with this as opposed to Lapband? I've really been considering talking to my doc about the lapband. But i really dont know much about the sleeve. I talkes to my mom about it here recently and she says there are other surgeries following the Sleeve but I have no idea.

    Ifeel like I am at a brick wall anymore. :/

    Feel free to message me if you'd rather respond privately :)
