Having Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Hi everyone,

I’m new here. I met with my surgeon this past week, and we determined that the gastric sleeve surgery would be the best option for me. I had gone in to discuss gastric bypass surgery, but my surgeon says I’m too heavy for that procedure. That wasn’t easy to hear. 

I am waiting to hear back from his office to schedule my surgery date. I’m sure I’ll have questions before the surgery. I hope to not only find support here but be able to give it to others as well. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

I’m glad you can join us here Becky. This site is a treasure trove of experience from people who had the gastric sleeve surgery.

Did your surgeon tell you about the pre-surgery procedures that you need to undergo before the surgery itself?

Nice to meet you, Becky. I am no medical professional, but I’ll be happy to share my experience and help others if possible.

Is there anything that you worry about a lot these days related to the surgery?
