    There is not any difference between the two procedures except that the MGB is less invassive and probably safer. Your nurse practitioner (as was mine) is probably un-informed on either procedure. It is up to you to give them as much info as possible and convince them that the MGB is the was to go. Come to the meeting a Babzz house and you will get loads of info to help you with this. I will give you an MGB manual.
    Good luck!

    Good suggestion.
    Come and grab a manual and meet us all. Give the manual to your nurse practitioner to look over. Very informal bunch so no worries k..

    Because it hasn't been performed as many times as the RNY and there is no scientific research to back it up. She argues me every step of the way. Even went as far as saying the website is a hoax, and everyone is being paid to talk about it! If I do have to get the RNY, I for sure want the laproscopic, and it seems to me that Munson Medical Center does not do the laproscopic. But yes, I most likely will attend. Can you PM me the address again please?

    dragonfly, come to the meeting and maybe we can help you with what to say to your NP. mine was the same way too, but i had researched the whole thing and was able to very confidently and assertivly tell her the difference in the 2 surgeries and why i wanted the mgb and NOT the rny. i believe it is YOUR DECISION, not the NPs to make, and once you know both surgeries and can tell the NP maybe she will listen to you. especially with so many of us mbgers right here from the soo!

    Hi guys just talk to Penny the other day and apparently her friend from here (the soo) had her surgery on the 12 and had major complications with a leak and stuff. She is still in the hospital and they did reverse the surgery but apparently the women has lost the feeling in her left arm. They are not sure why yet but she's still in the hospital.
    Just thought I would let you all know. Now I'm starting to second guess this surgery. I'm a bit paranoid I think.

    Just checked the email Penny sent me to make sure I got the story right and it's not that she doesn't have feeling in her left arm it's that she can't move her left arm.

    wow, that is scarey. it is true, there can be complications with any surgery. part of doing that whole packet is to remind us that it could happen. it is very rare, but could.

    i met her at your place babzz, she was so nice, i hope she is ok and recovering.
