I just read on a support forum that some people feel bullied by other WLS’ers about the surgery they chose. Really?? We are going there with each other?? That’s just sad!
What difference does it make which surgery we chose? We’re all in the same boat! We all needed help to lose weight and get healthy again. I can’t believe we’re picking on each other about which tool we picked to get healthy!
In “Which Tool is Right For You?” I talked about the pro’s and con’s of each surgery. But neither is “better” than another. We shouldn’t be putting each other down for the choice we made that was right for us. That’s a very, very personal choice between patient and doctor, and shouldn’t be up for discussion again if it was the “right” or “wrong” decision.
Let’s support each other on our journey’s and not put each other down! This is something we should all support each other on. That’s the reason we join forums and support groups. Support groups aren’t for everyone, and that’s fine too, but when push comes to shove, we should all be able to give each other a kind word or a gentle kick in the butt if need be, without saying “you chose the wrong tool”.
