Doubts about sleeve option



Recommended Posts

Hi there new to here. I am 2 weeks post sleeve op. I had a few problems but they seem to be getting better. I have read numerous conversations on here that say basically the sleeve is a waste of tim and bypass is the way to go. Has anyone had success with sleeve and found it a good choice? Hope I didnt make the wrong choice.

I had the RNY and my daughter has the sleeve. She has lost over 70 lbs . and has way more food options and seems to have less problems with Vitamin absorption.. I have lost faster but have no acid reflux but have dumped once and vomited.. there are pros and cons to each and each one of us can use our surgeries as the tools they were suppose to be and plot out our own journey to success.. you will do great!! I was so affraid of failure until I decided I was an individual and what works for one person might not work for me.. people who have had the sleeve have great success..

both are good surgeries - and as the above poster stated, both have their pros and cons. I've been involved on bariatric internet forums and support groups for five or six years now, and I know of many people who've been successful with both. So yes - you can definitely be successful with the sleeve!

Both are viable options. I'm coming up on six months post-op sleeve and have lost 35 pounds.

Thank you very much very helpful comments. Although I went through the oh no what have I done when suffering severe vomitting and the runs I am confident of success. After all whats a few weeks discomfort for a lifetime of slim lol. I must admit will be glad when Fluid stage is over

I’m five years out with the sleeve. I’m maintaining in the 130’s. I bounced back from surgery and had no complications. For me it was a great choice.

This site is mainly people researching, are new and in weight loss phase, had weight gain or complications. Understand that many people that are maintaining no longer need support on this site. Read this link to see the positive stories to give you a balanced look at outcomes.

For newbies We are not ALL doomed to regain.

There is no way for me to avoid offending the people on this site that have had regain. What I am saying is not judging them. Have compassion. There are reasons why people regain (medical issues, complications, eating disorders, pregnancy and not following plan. -

Anyone who has stretched their surgery needs it diagnosed and therapy to control overeating. I would hate to see anyone stretch a second surgery. If they need a restart, I hope the second one works for them.

Bottom line, the only reason any of us gain weight is eating over calories and macros.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
