Has anyone on here regretted their decision to have the sleeve?

I haven't had surgery just yet. I've met with my surgeon back in November and I told him I wanted the sleeve, but just a couple of days ago I've been considering the RnY bypass.

I did but I am not typical. I knew in my heart that the bypass would have been a better surgery for me from the start. I feared the malabsorption and possible complications from bypass so I opted for the sleeve.
never experienced gerd in my life. Until after my sleeve.
about 1 year post sleeve I had gerd and a hiatal hernia. Ended up having to revise to bypass. Some of the things that made me think hard about having the bypass in the beginning was that I did not want to have to do surgery twice.
having said that, there are many people that do just fine and are successful with the sleeve.

No regrets at all. It wasn't all easy, but it wasn't all that hard either. I've not had any complications from the surgery and my lifestyle is a lot better.

Definitely do not regret a thing. Best decision I have ever made. I only wish I would have done it sooner.

I'm only 6 weeks out but I'm so excited about having had the sleeve! I'm only 28lbs down so far but there is a difference in how I feel for sure. I don't regret it and I pray I never grow to.

No regrets, it saved my life and gave me a new start. This girl huffed and puffed down the block, to her car, and is not preparing to do a race and does 6 to 8 miles in a day. Aside from typical pain at the big incision (where the stomach comes out), I've been blessed with no complications and haven't gotten sick once yet. Yes, I've had uncomfortable bloating, and some times feel nauseated (mostly my Vitamins, which I'm changing) but that's all. It's been such a tremendous blessing, but it's truly a personal decision. All I can suggest is to educate yourself, listen to your surgeon and nutritionist and, if you make the choice, don't let others get you down.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
