Hi, I'm 51 and have had weight issues since adolescence.  Sleep Apnea, high blood pressure, multiple lumbar hernias and a lack of mobility have led me to the conclusion that I have to do something, and I have chosen a Sleeve Gastrectomy as the way to go.  I had mu surgery on July 29 and the journey has been interesting.  I'm learning that the surgery was just the start and I look forward to the rest of my journey.
