Default If you have not had WLS, read this FIRST.

This is a reminder that this part of 3FC is a weight loss surgery support forum. As the title of the forum suggests, If you've had it, or are considering it, share your discussions here. This is the one area of the forum that the WLS members should be able to post without worry of defending or justifying their decisions. (It's sad that there has to be justification to begin with!)

If you do not agree with weight loss surgery, this forum is not for you.

If you want to debate weight loss surgery or if you want to stop anybody from having surgery, this forum is not for you.

If members post about WLS in other areas of the forum, you are more than welcome to give your two cents about the surgery, but this is the SUPPORT forum. Debates can be taken up in the general areas by all members, including WLS and non-WLS.

And last but not least, our WLS members are not scientific subjects here for you to try and understand why they did it. If you want to know, then please get to know them by reading their posts, and learn that way. There is no short answer, and these kinds of questions do ask for a lot of heart and soul for a personal answer.
  • If you are here to make a decision, feel free to ask specific questions that you may have, but don't ask in general 'why did you do it' or 'what is it like' etc. If you are serious about weight loss surgery, and making the commitment to surgery, then you need to start with the discipline to read and study on your own and get all the facts.
  • If you are here for general inquisitiveness, please don't ask but do feel free to read.
There is no right answer from any member here. If you want surgery, you need to check out every detail and decide how you feel this fits your life. This is a very personal decision. If you're seriously considering surgery, I'm sure you understand why this post is necessary.

Another reminder

Also please note that WLS patients have special dietary needs and what applies in the rest of our forum (or for the general population) does not always apply here. We realize that many people want to support our WLS members, and we think that's fantastic! However, if you don't have personal experience in this area then your advice may be wrong or potentially dangerous.

Thanks
