    Good luck you’ll do great... be sure to get up as soon as you can and start walking. I had my surgery in March 2018. Best decision ever.

    it'sonlythefirststep got a reaction from Slownstedy in Hernia removal   
    I had a hernia repaired during my sleeve. I have seen it is very common to find it while they are in there. Mine was very small. However we did discussed what ifs before the surgery and what I would want him to do in certain cases.

    it'sonlythefirststep got a reaction from GreenTealael in BMI OF 31 AND 35 LB TO LOSE. IS IT WORTH IT?   
    Maybe try the liquid diet (mine was two weeks). Nothing but liquids, no food. I lost 14 lbs. maybe with weight watchers and alternate between the two. Spending $$$$ for surgery Might not be a wise thing to do. It is definitely a life changing surgery. This is just my opinion. My choice was surgery but I had over 125 lbs to lose.
