Default WLS on Sept 9 !!!!!

I can hardly believe that my surgery is coming up so fast! I am having a new procedure at MAYO clinic, it's called the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty. It's all done endoscopicly with no incisions. I'm nervous but very excited for this life changing event!

Congratulations! That is exciting! Sounds like a great procedure and you're certainly in good hands with the Mayo Clinic! Wishing you all the best!

Thanks Diyana!
Mayo is such a great place. Everyone there is so kind and accommodating. The whole process has gone so smoothly.

Michael Kendrick. I still talk weekly to a woman I met in the waiting room at Mayo. Our surgeries were a few weeks apart.. She had Kellogg. We both have had awesome results, losing over 80% of our excess weight. It is a lot of work and worth it.

My surgeons will be Dr. Barham Abu Dayyeh and Dr. Christopher Gostout. They are the pioneers of this new procedure.
