Hi! Nice to meet another Nana! I had my surgery in Dec 2016 and have not regretted a moment of it. Prior to my sleeve, I had the lap band and hated every moment of it. I haven't had any issues with gerd, dumping or vitamin deficiency, either. Just make sure you follow all your surgeon and dietitian's instructions and you'll be fine. Please feel free to ask any questions you think of in the future.
