About VSG

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

Im still really freaked out.

I have an appt tomorrow afternoon at 2pm. Not with my PCP because she's booked up but another doc in the same office.

I'm still really shaken up about it especially when hubby told me last night that my eyes were open the whole time, just rolling around, out of focus. I thought that my eyes had closed as suddenly he was in focus so I assumed it was because I opened my eyes. He told me that I'd never closed them at all. I had I couldn't find anything about fainting where the person's eyes stayed open for the episode. That's a seizure from what I can find which scares the crap out of me. I get healthy and THIS happens!?

I told my boss this morning that I was going to have to take tomorrow afternoon off and what happened and I almost started crying right then and there.


  1. ((((prayers))))). Please let us know how you make out!

  2. I know I'm likely blowing this way out of proportion but this really getting to me. I just had my 3 month standing orders for bloodwork done on Friday. This morning they called me to tell me that my doc got the results and now wants more tests. They didn't tell me what, I'll find that out tomorrow but jeez... there's got to be something wrong in my bloodwork for her to want another test so soon... and she doesn't even know that I fainted yet!


  3. I hope everything works out! What a terrifying experience to have to go through after all you've done to get healthy. I'm thinking of you!

  4. I hope you get some answers, that is scary indeed!

  5. Hope all is well with you. Seizures are scary!! I've been known to do the eyes-open seizure now and then. Hang in there!
