One size fits all advice scares me.
(?) Im not sure what you mean.
You do not have a RnY.
.......I thought I made it clear I have a VSG. Its listed as my wl surgery of choice for almost 4 years now...on my avatar thingie.
Hang out with people who are living successfully with YOUR surgery type.
Indeed I have for 4 years . I don't know how this statement relates to the question posed.
No need to reply, Im going back under my rock
THANKS SO MUCH to everyone else!!
Carmelita, I think you're taking offense where none was intended.
When you make a post asking a question, you should be prepared to answer questions as well. That's give and take, right? And given that your post was about bad/wrong advice you wre given by a medical professional, it's fairly normal to wonder what other bad advice you've gotten. Even so, I really think this was intended as a 'rhetorical' question.
BB's referring to the fact that you were given RNY advice, not surgery-specific advice, hence the comment about 'one size fits all' advice being a bad thing.
EVERYBODY knows you've got a VSG. Becky was merely pointing out, again, that RNY advice doesn't apply to you---because she KNOWS you've got a VSG.
And when she says hang out with others who have your surgery type, she's NOT trying to tell you to go back under your rock---she's again pointing out the RNYers and VSGers have different needs.Not so much to you, but to others who may be reading this post looking for similar information. If that gets up your nose---well, maybe you should go back undr that roc****il your nose is a little less sensitive. (*grin*)
