    Not agreeing with the surgeon.

    When I talked to my surgeon, I told him I had decided on the sleeve, unless he thought I should get the bypass. He said since I asked him, he said they are both good surgeries. But if he had to have surgery himself, he would choose the sleeve. He also said, if he could only do one type of surgery for the rest of his life, he would choose the sleeve. My doctor is one of the top bariatric surgeons in Florida. He is a center of excellence doctor. I hope this helps. I agree with Kelly, its your body, and your decision. Good luck!!

    All-Stars Preo-op diet thread

    I have to follow the Adkins diet for 2 weeks before surgery. So basically no carbs. I got really lucky compared to most of you on liquid diets!!

    Peanut Butter Cup

    This is a very yummy treat. Peanut Butter Cup 1 sugar free fudgepop 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter 2 tablespoons of cool whip free Put the frozen fudgepop in a bowl, and place it in the microwave for 10 secs or so, so the stick will easily slide out. Mix the fudge pop, peanut butter, and cool whip together. ENJOY!!!! makes one serving
