July 25, 2017 I had a gastric sleeve performed. 132 pounds later and a leak in my sleeve that won't heal, my sleeve was converted into a bypass on January 31, 2018. Healing was expected to be completed within 1 - 2 weeks. Nearly four weeks later, I'm supposedly better but not completely healed as of today (Feb 25, 2018).
Many extended hospital stays, endless antibiotics to control infection and a toll on my children and marriage, I regret having done this. I know that I may have been dead within 5 to 10 years if I didn't have the surgery, but at what point does another infection do me in? Next month, next year etc?
