    Hi, I'm from STL and having my sleeve with Dr Snow on nov 19. I was originally ached for Aug but decided to delay it because I am going on a 2 wk cruise and did not want to worry about complications away from home. So how are you doing now with the sleeve? I too have been torn between having band and sleeve. But I have done a lot of reading in FB groups and am leading towards the sleeve. Why did u decide to choose sleeve?
  2. Lauranbob, thank you for yr reply. How did you feel strength wise at 2 months out? We're you still tired?
  3. Silly girl did y have the sleeve? I just got approval to have sleeve. I can have on 8/20. My question to u is if u were going on an 2 wk cruise 8 wks post opt would u hold off and have surgery after cruise? I thought I would ask u since know what it feels like around this timeframe. Thanks for your input.

    Samijane. Question for u. Now that u are 3 wks post op, would you go on a 2 wk cruise at 7 or 8 wks post opt??? I am asking because I am goin on a 2 wk cruise Oct 15 and I don't know if I would be okay if I got the sleeve Aug 20 If I should wait until after cruise. I am glad u are doing so good.
  8. Shellie and golden -- thats awesome of you for offering your support to us soon to be sleevers. I would like your opinion about this. I have completed my 90 day maint. Ins. Requirement and am waiting for Ins approval. And I am going on a 2 wk cruise and don't know if I should wait to have surgery before or after the cruise. If I am able to have surgery 7 -8 wks before the cruise do you thing I would be feeling good enough to enjoy cruise??? Thanks for your thoughts.

    Hey I'm from STL too. Not sleeved yet. I have completed my 90 day maint req by ins and now waiting for approval. Drs. Wagoner and Snow is who I am using. I am going on a 2 wk cruise to Europe Oct 15 and I am having a hard time deciding if I should wait til after cruise to have surgery. I don't want to be to tired or sick to enjoy. And i was looking forward to being smaller for the trip. And then theres all The wonderful Food i would miss out on. If i am able to have surgery by Aug 15 or 20 that would put me a 7-8 weeks til the cruise. Experienced sleevers- what's your thoughts??? What would u do??
  11. Hey I am new to VST too. I would like to be your buddy. I haven't had my surgery yet, I have completed my 90 days maintenance required by insurance and waiting for approval. I like the fact that of you three there are two that have already been sleeved and can be of much support. I am having a hard time deciding on whether or not to have my surgery before or after I go on my cruse Oct 14. Let me know if you three are interested in adding me to yr group. :-)
