Well we're really glad you've asked this question. The whole purpose of our site is to be a repository of WLS (Weight Loss Surgery) information. It wouldn't be much use if you couldn't get information readily.
All the pages on the Site and the Message Forum are searchable. The search feature is the most underutilized tool on our site .... ???? We're not sure why, but YOU could be the exception!
You'll find the search field for the main web site pages at the very top right corner of any page you're on. You'll know where to type your search query because the field is pre populated with "TYPE KEYWORD" in it.
The Discussion Forum (every topic and every note written) is also searchable. To use the Forum search, Click on the Forum link and look for the "Magnifying Glass" Icon at the bottom left of the Topic list, just below the RSS feed icon. When you mouse over the magnifying glass, a text window will pop up that says "Search" . Click on the icon and you'll be taken to the Forum Search page.
