Hi there everyone,
I am scheduled to have my sleeve surgery in 3 weeks. I have been considering the procedure for yonks but I only started the ball rolling about 2 months ago, so it has all happened reasonably quickly.
I am a mother to two small children and wife to a beautiful (and tolerant!) husband. I have consulted a lot of evidence based journals from clinical databases and have come to the same conclusion I had at the beginning of this journey... for me the benefits of gastric sleeve surgery far outweigh the negatives.
I am not irrationally excited about the procedure because I know I will lose weight, however, my issue has never been losing weight, but keeping the weight off. The sleeve is a tool that I am going to make the most of!
