Survey For Everyone

Recommended Posts

Please answer the following questions. I'm writing a research paper on GBS for my college writing class and need some more sources! All are encouraged to fill this out, even if you haven't had the surgery yet. I need people who have had the surgery recently (within the last month or two), people who are more than 6 months out, people that are more than a year out and people that haven't had the surgery but are going through the process of qualification now.

1) Name (first name is fine)

2) Age

3) Height

4) Weight and BMI before surgery

5) Current weight and BMI

6) When was your surgery performed?

7) What did you experience before surgery (emotions, the qualification process, etc)?

8) What did you experience after surgery (emotions, pain, complications, etc)?

9) Were friends/family supportive of your decision? Please describe your experience with them.

10) Did you have co-morbidities before surgery? If so, which ones?

11) Do you have co-morbidities now? If so, are they less severe than they were before surgery?

12) Have you experienced any side-effects since surgery? If so, which ones? (dumping, hair loss, etc.)

13) Overall, how would you rate your experience with GBS (including the good and bad with surgeons, hospital stay and the staff, results, complications, etc)? NOTE: For this question, please do NOT rate the overall experience with a number. Please write out a response.

Thanks for taking the survey! :D
