My name is Stella and I had my sleeve gastrectomy in 2011. On surgery day I weighed in at just shy of 170kg (I'm 175cm tall) and had been overweight all my life, except for a very short period in my late teens when I managed to get to the mid 70s.
Coming up on the four year anniversary of that day, and I'm down to 127kg. I've had my gallbladder removed, and I'm now facing insulin resistance issues. I've also had a fair few injuries from exercise - turns out it's not so good for you after all!
I guess I'm looking for advice and support from others who have had partial success with the surgery and who are still battling to reach their ultimate goals.
Hello to you all - I look forward to hearing about your journeys, your tips and tricks, and your lives in general :)
