I read a post yesterday that made me mad, but then it also made me think the poster had a point, he just didn't have any tact, and it seemed like he was trying to stir up trouble. I hope he wasn't, but that's how I felt.
Here's what I have also wondered, and please don't flame me, I am serious, my husband had a VSG in 7-06, and I am (was in '06) very well informed about RNY and VSG.
Here's my "concern" - Why is it, that when you type in MGB in a search engine, Dr. Rutledge seems like he is the only surgeon represented? Is it just too "new"?
I have read the e-book from cover to cover. I also see a few places in Mexico that offer that choice. Is there another name? Was it derived from a different procedure - similar to the sleeve? I advocate doing as much research as possible on legitimate sites, so
The first day I found his site, I was thrilled, it's just what I want....but I remember the old adage that if it looks too good to be true, it usually is. Of course, I used to think that about VSG, too, so I've been schooled about that preconception more than once!
Can any of the folks who have had MGB or have chosen another surgery type over it please tell me their experiences? I will be a cash patient, so I'm not biased due to insurance, I just want to do the right thing for me. I have to live with it!
