activity has dropped a lot in the six years I've been on here. It's too bad because I like this site much better than the other major bariatric forums, which seem to be mostly pre-ops and newbies (not that there's anything wrong with pre-ops and newbies, but that's not where I'm at anymore, and haven't been in quite awhile). This one has always had a nice mix of people at all different phases. I guess a lot of people are joining Facebook groups now, unfortunately ("unfortunately" because there are a lot of terrible ones out there...)
Dr A posts because he is the one of the premier surgeons for performing VSG, and he makes a point of continually reaching out to the VSG community to provide information for new and post-op patients. His videos are awesome and very informative, they helped me a lot in the first couple of years.
