Was mentally accepting the idea of LSG;VSG, any thoughts on LGCP?
- Last updated: 5 months ago
Was preparing to invest and got more serious to take the plunge with LSG surgery but the place that I was looking up only offers LGCP, and I felt pushed by the clinic through emails to take that. While from what I read there are less occurrences of leakage with LGCP (as the stomach is sewn smaller with no cutting, stapling or removal of excess stomach), there are more redo surgeries statistically needed after than compared to LSG. A big BIG important factor I'm thinking is that the ghrelin (hormone that makes us feel hungry from what I've read) levels are not lowered as much as LSG would. As much of a difference feeling 27% less hungry post surgery for LGCP but a whopping 70+% from those who were assessed after the LSG procedure.Any insight, experiences, thoughts that could point me in the right direction to advocate for LGCP? As I still think LSG is more what I think will be a better fit for me.Thank you for any time or consideration on sharing your knowledge
