Default Sleeve gastrectomy

Has anybody here had the sleeve gastrectomy or is thinking of having it? I am going through my insurance to have weight loss surgery and I want the sleeve gastrectomy.

What does the sleeve gastrectomy entail?

This procedure is irreversible but leaves a digestive system -- that is other than the reduced stomach -- more or less intact. The procedure seems to be almost as effective as more extreme operations. Thus its fast becoming the go to WLS option.

I'm planning to have this procedure.

Scheduled for surgery the day after tomorrow. Quite nervous but hopeful. I've been having some weight related health issues that I'm hoping WLS will mitigate (getting old sucks).

Good luck, BM. Fingers crossed that this helps improve your life.

And yah, the whole getting old thing does indeed suck -- but it beats the only alternative that we have at the moment!

Thanks everyone. No complications (yet). My surgeon said everything went well. I was discharged this afternoon and I'm feeling better than I expected.

Its been almost four months. I'm down about 50 pounds since surgery and 90 pounds total. No adverse effects of any note. My diabetes is under control. So I guess things are going well.

I can't rep you, bigmac (hilarious that I am like NEVER on here but I still can't rep you), but congrats. I had the sleeve myself almost 3 years ago - I've lost 350 pounds and have a new baby. It was a good choice for me. Hoping you're finding it was a good one for you as well.
