Just got a nice message about my gastric bypass diary

I received an interesting e-mail from someone who read my gastric bypass surgery diary:

After twelve years I imagine you still get a ton of emails about this. I hope that they haven’t worn you out, and I’ll try and keep this short. I read the entire diary, which is quite a feat as most things I read on the internet don’t hold my interest for more than 5 minutes. Your story brought me to tears several times. Not because the content saddened me, but because it forced me to come to terms with my own weight problem. I don’t think that I could handle the strict routine that follows a GBS. I’m afraid that I would end up eating myself to death if I tried, but thanks to you, I’m changing my life today so that I don’t eat myself to death the slow way.

I also decided against GBS because of the strict post-op routine. I chose the Duodenal Switch because it is much easier to live with for me. If you're still in contact with that person they may want to hear about the DS as an option.
