Hello, New here... Had an AGB back in 2005, lost 65 pounds then it slipped. Had it removed in 2008 and after 9 years I gained the weight back plus more. I am now at my heaviest and have had a bunch of other health issues that joined the party. I have been mentioning WLS again to my PCP for almost a year and finally took the step to make an appointment just to discuss my weight. To my delight he was very positive and is writing me a referral to the local Weight Loss center. I am beyond thrilled. I am positive this time will be different. I have a better support structure and know better what to expect. I would like to have a DS but unfortunately I don't believe it is offered in Maine. Looking for advice and recommendations about how to get the best surgery for myself if it isn't offered in my local area?
