I've been looking into a MGB surgery and have gotten a really quick response from SmartShape Weight Loss Centre - Division of Centric Health. I was going to get the lap band but after speaking with a Dr. he suggested the MGB would be better for me. I live in Vancouver but they only do the surgery in Toronto so I'll be flying to TO in November for my surgery. Look up SmartShape as they have locations all over Canada.
So ive been scheduled for GBS Aug 18, 2017 (yay me!), and I am starving on the pre-op diet! My surgeon said absolutely no meat just the shakes, sf jello, crystal light, broth, and veggies. I am ok with that, but will it hurt if I have 1 piece of chicken!? Not fried of course. Some meal ideas would be helpful! Thanks guys
Hi, I'm new here and gathering information about gastric bypass, would like to know how to start.... you say your surgeon was great wich hospital is he at.... how can I get his information and get a consultation. Thank you any info will help.
I'm new to this chat thing, not sure if anyone still on it. I'm going on my 5th week just wondering what foods I can eat. My dr says to stick with grilled fish, grilled chicken, but I been craving bads. I know not a good subject about bad foods but I'm only human.
Hi! I requested to join this group last week and am still waiting, lol. Is there any way you can get me in? I'm really anxious to talk to other sleeve to MGB revision people. I'm having mine in about a week. Thank you!
Be careful. I have been talking to a location in TJ and I had only been discussing the MGB. today when I got my paperwork from them, it said that I was scheduled for the mini RNY. When I inquired, i was told that they are the same thing....
From what I am readying , they are not....It appears that one is reversible and the other is not and that the RNy requires more cuttings....
I had my surgery in Bahrain. Yes I can eat almost everything except for milk, but icecream in moderation is fine.. I can eat sweet things but in moderation.. around 1 cup per meal. And try to have several small meals through out the day. I'm happy that I lost weight and got my periods regular because that was the main reason why I got the surgery done in the first place. I'm able to wear whatever I want and still look good in it.. I just worry about losing more and having vitamin deficiency and any related side effects... I really think the sleeve was a better option for me ..
