- HEALTH TRACKER
Hey there Prairie Lady, I totally agree with you that it would be great if they would routinely do the VSG here in Sask. Personally I think it is the superior procedure. I could be wrong. Either way, it is a great tool that is phenomanal for so many. Look at Billie and how well he is doing with it. The RNY reduces weight very well but I am quite concerned about the future ramifications of that one. Maybe I just see and hear all the negative things about it.
I have been chronically anemic and for over a year I have been supplementing with 3 iron tabs per day and my numbers are just starting to be at the low end of the ranges. If I were to do the RNY, I would more than likely have to have IV iron frequently which is apparently not fun. I am blessed that the surgeons are compassionate and skilled enough to provide me with the alternative VSG.
Keep us posted on your journey.
