What percent of stomach was taken?



Recommended Posts

I was told they were going to remove 80 to 85% of my stomach, but I'm sure it was just a guesstimate. Once the doc gets in there he used a bogie as a guide for sizing and stapling, so I'm sure he never really took an accurate measurement of my starting stomach size. So it could have been more or less than 85%.

Same here, about 80-85%.

I was told my doc does a 90% sleeve.

I could never get an answer from my Dr or the PA. Their standard answer is, "it's about the size of a banana"...as they point to a plastic sleeved stomach hanging on a metal stand. Grrrrrr.

That's all I was told too, that it's about the size of a banana. In the end, does the exact portion removed really matter?

At this point it's neither here nor there. But, a lot of posters can say exactly what percentage was removed, or left behind..some can even tell you the bougie size. Just wish I knew. I've been hungry since early out. I think some that are never hungry must have a tiny tight tummy and I don't think mine is, to that extreme.

I can tell you bougie size but have no idea what % that translates to
