Greetings everyone! I had a VSG 7 years ago. I did really well until 3 years in when I experienced multiple stressors: my father died; my mother's dementia progressed and she can no longer recognize me; I was diagnosed with MS; lost a job I loved; had rotator cuff surgery; dh was laid-off, not rehired with good insurance lol. Anyway, I dealt with the stress by just losing interest/not caring/becoming really depressed. And, bad eating and no moving over 4 years has me right where I was 7 years ago. I just called my surgeon's office and found out she is now doing the DS! I couldn't be happier. My appt to see her is on Friday the 13th ;-) I'm embarrassed about the weight gain but I've never perceived her as judgy. Fingers crossed and I hope to learn a lot from this site!
