I looked into gastric sleeve surgery after having numerous problems with my stomach that no one really had the answers too. I did some research and the sleeve came up as a possible solution so I booked an appointment with my local hospital and never looked back. I did the 6 months of nutrition and booked my surgery date two weeks after my last appointment (due to Thanksgiving falling the week after my appointment) I then had my surgery on December 20th 2018. Surgery was hard, I woke up in a lot of pain and dry heaving during the night plus one of the incisions leaking. But the next morning when they finally let me out of the bed to walk it was like a complete 360. I wasn't dry heaving and the pain was minimal. Went home the day after surgery and have been feeling relatively good since.
