I had VSG in 2012 with Dr Ortiz at the Obesity Control Center in Mexico. It was the best decision -

Last year I noticed that i was no longer able to maintain my weight loss so before it got out of control I decided to have the DS with Dr Cottam in Salt Lake City. It was the modified surgery. The surgery was a success and my recovery was not too bad.

It has taken me a long time to fine tune what I can and cannot eat - luckily I have been working from home this past year!

I have slowly lost weight - I have about 10 more pounds that I would "like" to lose but I am at "normal" BMI now.

Congratulations on your progress and success over the years. I'm glad you've been able to work out the process for you. We've had the same surgery so I'm hoping to be where you are in a few more months.

Cheers to you!

I do not think Cottam does the DS, I think he does sadi,sips etc.....

congrats on your accomplishment!

If you have a specific question for me, PM me or I will not see it, as I don't check responses on the forums and don't have anything forwarded to my email.
