I have only just joined myself, and I have found a lot of wonderful support and advice here. I was sleeved in August, and spent a couple of days in hospital. I am also a registered nurse, so I have seen both sides of the hospital ward! Surgery is a big deal, and some degree of nervousness and anxiety is expected.
There are lots of topics here, so any questions you have, I am sure that somebody here will have either done it, said it, saw it, drank it, ate it or stopped doing it!
