Finally got Date, start Opti May 30. Always thought I'd have RNY however Surgeon noticed I was on aspirin 81mg and told me he would do a Sleeve unless family Doc gave him a note that I could eliminate aspirin. I have contacted Doc and awaiting note, however most of my weight gain has come as I have been lass active. I have never been a binge or severe overwater and seldom eat sweets. I'm confident I can stick to plan long term and have so far lost 35-40 pounds since end of Jan. Im thinking Sleeve may be best option for me vs RNY my understanding is 2 years out Sleeve loss vs RNY is equal and Sleeve has less possible complications. Any thoughts.
