- HEALTH TRACKER
This time last year I was 245 pounds and miserable. I had a failed LapBand and gained all the weight back. I had heel spurs and borderline high blood pressure. I was scared to death to jump back into WLS, but I found the most amazing doctor with the best team.
It was the best decision I have ever made. I am now 148 pounds, which has far exceeded my expectations. I feel better than I ever have in my life. I am confident, healthy, and feel great!!!!
The smaller the sleeve the higher chance for servere acid reflux. my doctor used a "bougie" as a guide. I had a size 40 which some consider on the big size but I can NOT eat more than 3/4 cup of food and I'm 9 months out. I got to goal in 8 months and lost nothing pre op. My doctor said he took out 85% of my stomach. I would ask this doctor how he determines the size, does he use a bougie?
