Just as Lynn explained to you, bands and sleeve do not malabsorb so it means nothing for you. You will absorb 100% of the calories and nutrition you consume.
May I suggest that you research all surgery types and make very sure you make an informed decision? WLS is a really big deal.
The band got me to goal, the sleeve will keep me there.
