I have decided to have have bariatric surgery. I am in the early stages of preparing for a VSG (Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy) According to my insurance, they want 12 months of consecutive documentation of me trying to lose weight with my doctor. I am 2 months into it. I have not lost anything, in fact, I've actually gained 7 pounds. *SIGH* I am trying hard to do this, I am pretty bummed with my insurance's requirements. I NEED this surgery. I am slowly killing myself. I need help. I am considering starting a YouTube channel to document my journey.
