Since I am creating this website from scratch, I have a question for "You:"
What do you look for at a website about Weight Loss Surgery?
Please drop me a line or two about what you would like to see on this site.
Here is what some Visitors have said:
"I look for insurance experiences mostly...but before I was at this
stage it was what the scar looked like after surgery and how bad it hurt."
"I love to see pictures, but I also like to read what other people have gone through in their journey."

"...I'd like to hear about other post-ops excersise routines... I really love hearing about how much someone's life has changed after having WLS."

"How about a list of activities that you can do now that you were not able to do before WLS? Like, I went snowboarding this winter for the first time in my life.... No way was my 300lb butt going down a mountain before!"
Suzan Woods email@example.com
"I vote for photos and stories of reconstructive surgery following weight loss."
"I'm six weeks post-op. I had a lap. gastric bypass and would love to see RECIPES on your site..."

"What about having something where you could post a list of those surgery dates, so people who wanted to, could send best wishes via e-mail on those dates. Sort of a Coming Attractions board. It could also be used for those "Landmark" dates when you have passed the Century mark or reached goal. Times like those would warrant a nice "congrats" from the rest of us. And, one last suggestion. A listing of television specials on weight loss would be nice. I don't get a TV Guide, so it might help to know when there are specials coming on."
