Thank you all. I will keep everyone posted on my journey. I am having this done in Temple, Texas at a teaching hospital. Don't know how many surgeries he has performed, but he seems to be very knowledgeable and informed about
the surgery. Will have to ask him about
that on our next meeting. Thanks to all who have posted on this forum it really does help those of us about
to go through this. When I first found out about
this surgery i was discouraged by the number of people who had bad experiences, but most of those were posts from people who had the procedure when it was still relatively new. Hope I will be able to burp after the surgery but just in case I can't it wont be to hard to kick my diet pepsi addiction since I have not had one in about
2 weeks. I still crave them but someone told me once she quit drinking diet sodas and lost weight. I was tihinking it had nothing to do with not drinking diet soda since it has no calories. I figured what the hey so I stopped drinking them and i lost more weight
. BY the time I rocover from the surgery maybe all the cravings for soda will be gone.
