I too am scheduled for VSG in August. Since my insurance does not cover the surgery, I am having the surgery in Dallas, TX. Only my family knows that I am having the surgery and I am extremely skeptical about informing my co-workers and friends about it due to overwhelming questions. I am looking for a support group to even someone to exchange emails with regarding my upcoming surgery. Any and all replies of support or information would be greatly appreciated. I hope to hear from someone soon!
