At how many months did your weightloss plateau officially? As in you never really lost more weight and you either began maintaining or actually started the dreaded regain. How close to goal were you?

If so what were the reasons? I was told this may be the case do to a C section however I can't help but feel it might be due to my lower BMI. I want the RNY for a few reasons. I feel like C sections are so common and if it actually was a reason I wou

I am nearing the end of my wait. Surgery is less than 5 weeks away. I qualified at 40.8 BMI and with some hard work lost 10 pounds. Then I lost another 5. I felt very frustrated because I just wanted to eat healthy and loose weight and despite the

This question is for anyone but I am wondering in particular about those through TWH. How much time were you given off? What type of work do you do? Was it negotiable? When did you receive your note?

I am oozing negativity and anger right now, so you may just want to skip this.

I had my meet the surgeon apt today and it started off with them forgetting me totally. I was assured to keep waiting and that I would be called, however I was actu

Welcome to the group. I just want to let you know, having this surgery just 7.5 months ago, was the single most important decision I ever made. My health is amazing. If you ever have questions please ask. Good luck and healthy trails.

Considering they are prescribed and for medical reasons, can we submit to insurance?  I don't mind paying of course, but why leave money in my ensures hands ?!? :-)  Also, what is a ballpark that I can expect to pay for 2-3 weeks worth?

 Has anyone in Ontario had VGS or RNY with a single incision?  If so, who was your surgeon?
