I've made my decision - and don't think I'll change it. AFter an hour long meeting with my surgeon, and tons of discussion, I am going for RNY. I was really sold on the sleeve, terrified of RNY, but I ...

Question about Dumping - I've read on here before that not everyone dumps, in fact less don't than do.   Does this mean some people after having surgery can consume liquid sweets such as milksha...

My numbers - My a1c levels for the past two check ups were 5.7. So basically my diabetes is manageable. Would you take diabetes into consideartion  for WLS with these numbers?

Board Rules - Is it okay or is it considered impolite/rude to post in all of the WLS forums, such as both VSG and RNY regularly? Or are we most supposed to stick to one board once our decsion...

technique - the surgeon explained he staples and then stitches between the staples, not the whole way. Thoughts?

How much - can a "mature" sleeve hold? I am talking appropriate food, not junk.

OT Is there a feed or something? - I see how if you click people's names you can ask to be their friend etc Then what happens, do you get a feed with posts from your friends?
