    I'm having my surgery in 6 days, 1 day short of [one year of] starting the program . . .

    My surgeon first recommended the band for me but I did the research and wanted VSG instead. I told him why I wanted it and he agreed and said it was fine for me to have VSG instead.

    I for one am so grateful I've had an entire program to go through./ . . .I just had to wait 32 days for my actual surgery!
    How are things going with you now?
    Thanks,

    Hey guys, I'm from new Brunswick and driving 6 hrs to montreal to get my sleeve done in February . No wait list at all with Dr.Gagner
    13000$ self pay so I've seen more expensive than that on this forum.

    I am in Ontario and I went to Mexico for surgery through WLF Medical out of Saskatoon! They arrange everything for you and provide you with excellent after surgery care and support.
