Pre surgery with so many questions

I had my consult today and am on track to have my gastric sleeve by the end of the year. Since this is so new I have so many questions. I have been very overweight for 12 years but the past 4 years have been a rollercoaster. In 2017 I lost 60lbs with the help of my endocrinologist and phentermine. I stopped taking it and gained back all 60 plus some within 4-5 months. Now I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been and am ready for change. Did any of you who are a year or more out have complications but ultimately got past that and live a normal life now? I am doing CrossFit now and I am planning to continue after surgery. How long after surgery can I expect to get back to doing these challenging workouts? What is your advice to me as someone just starting the process. What questions should I ask my doctor/ nutritionist?
