- HEALTH TRACKER
I am in the pre op process of testing and meeting all of my insurance requirements for sleeve surgery. I have been lurking on here for a while and have gained great insight to life after sleeve surgery from many of you. Thank you to all who have traveled this down this path, been successful and have shared your bumps along the road...you are all a huge inspiration!
With that said, I cant help but wonder (especially after reading alot of long term vet experience) if anyone who is a few years out, lost the weight and maintained it, thinks that they could have done it without the sleeve. I am reading how good many of you follow your eating plan and are able to maintain your weight loss...i am wondering if looking back, you would have been able to buckle down and lost it regardless? Perhaps this is just pre surgery jitters...i have been overweight for the past 20 years and have thought long and hard about having this surgery but i am very nervous about the complications I have read about bec. I have 2 small children....any shared insight would be greatly appreciated.
