Topic: RE: New to Forum and have questions!!
I have had Type I Diabestes for over 30 years. I am currently using an insulin pump with continuous glucose sensors. I met with my surgeon this week and he recommending VSG. I was dead set on the Band, however after doing research, talking with my surgeon and others who have had the procedure, I think the Sleeve would be the best choice. After researching several WLS surgery programs and experiencing many surgeons who have never performed the procedure on a Type I, I have finally found one that I am comfortable and confident with.
If everything goes well I will have my surgery in December! I am going back and forth whether or not I am making the right decision. I worry about complications from the surgery but I am especially concerned about my post op care. The idea of a liquid diet scares me to death.
I would like to know other Type I Diabetics that have had the VSG and their experience! I look forward in reading your posts. Thanks.
