Hi all Firstly I want to start off by saying I have been reading these forums for a short while now and the content has really been a great help, thank you to everyone who contributes and shares their experiences. Some background: I have lost 90kg the hard way (diet, exercise, heavy restriction, and hard work) about 5 years ago, but due to my current work I do not have the time or energy to do it all again. I am by no means looking at the gastric sleeve as the "silver bullet", but I am looking at it as a helping hand to get me on the right track. I've been talking about it a bit with some close friends and one is vigorously against it and it has put some second thoughts in my head this evening. At the moment I am going in on 1 July 2019 to have my gastric sleeve done through Dr Teague in Ashford Medical. I guess I am looking for some people's perspectives from their surgeries and their journeys. Any point of views are helpful and I would be appreciative to read through some of them. Thank you in advance.
