And I’ll go first!! Hehe
When I first met the surgeon, I’d done quite a bit of research on the sleeve- I thought it seemed like the best option for me.
After meeting the surgeon, I read through all the literature and decided on the RNY, mostly because:
- RNY can help reduce (and eliminate for some people) reflux
- RNY skips the duodenum- which reduces the amount of nutrients absorbed - which means you aren’t getting as many calls from the good you eat.
- the stomach isn’t actually taken out.
Risk of complications down the track can be slightly higher with the RNY over a sleeve... My surgeon aid if I were planning to move to a desert island and will never see a doctor again, she would do a sleeve!
Im only two weeks into my post RNY journey, but so far so good!
