New year, new resolutions, lots of new people around. And for that reason, we've been seeing quite a few responses to people's pleas for information about surgery that run along the lines of 'it's not your only choice.' Or, 'I wouldn't do it if i were you.' Or, 'have you exhausted all other possibilities.' And one of my personal favorites 'everyone I know who's had surgery has failed.'
None of these comments are ON TOPIC when someone asks for information about surgery. If you haven't had surgery, you are not qualified to speak about it.
If you haven't had surgery, please read this sticky:
If you have not had WLS, read this FIRST.
If you want to debate surgery, there are other parts of 3FC that are more suitable.
If you have any issues with this, and I mean REAL issues, not simply hurt feelings, please PM me.
