    Larra messaged me with the link. Many thanks, @Larra@Larra - I love the straightforward manner of this place!

    I think I saw this page when I joined a FB group, but I feel like I also bounced here a few times when doing Google searches on various weight loss surgery things and decided to join. I like this forum for the knowledge that most seem to have about the various surgeries and the legality help that seems available for those that need assistane with appeals etc. I also am in a couple FB groups but for a different reason - primarily that I also like visual motivation/ inspiration and people post photos fequently there. This multimodal brain loves books, but sometimes you just wanna veg out and watch a few movies ya know? :alien::D

    @Larra@Larra invited me from Obesity Help website, twice. Just too hard headed last time to stick around for some real education. Thanks so much for your help already, and you as well @DianaCox@DianaCox

    I had found DS facts first or, obesity help, and had them all confused in the beginning. I had read a lot of what Diane wrote and it convinced me to get the DS. On one of my posts, I mentioned her and how helpful her stuff was. Soon after, Larra emailed me at that site and said many had moved here, including Diana. After that, I have been here and have been grateful for all the help and support ever since.

    This is an infinitely better place than OH. The management is a lot more helpful and not as biased and nasty to people.

    OH, unfortunately, seems to be a cesspool of willful ignorance... I am so glad I'm here!

    @Larra@Larra messaged me at OH too. I had mistaken this board for another who was very hostile towards my planned surgeon over billing practices, so was 'thanks but no thanks'. Then I realised I had the two boards confused, and here I am!

    Hostility is the name of the game at OH. Even the admin are nice here and helpful! So are the people. I have a very favorable view of the DS surgery thanks to the info and experiences shared on this board. I'm happy for the education.

    I also had a bad surgeon experience and they tear you up and rip you up over there like they are paid by the surgeons' themselves.

    I joined the Mexicalli bariatric center Facebook group and someone on that recommended this site. The rest is history!, they'll never get rid of me.

    I found it through a search I was doing trying to find information about self pay surgeons, best I remember. I don't remember what search engine it was, probably google. That was too long ago, late last year. It seems like I typed in a search question and something from the forum here popped up and I followed the lead, then asked to join. At the same time I joined a couple of FB groups and even though I see some of the same faces here as the FB group I prefer this setting for learning.
