Hello!  I've heard that stomach and waistline goes down significantly after having RNY due to the fat that has built up around those areas before surgery.  How about with the sleeve. Has anyone found this to be a problem?

Hello all! I want to have the sleeve but I'm oh so worried about having terrible acid reflux. It was awful when I had the band. Also, for those who have diabetes, did it help with your A1C numbers. I have a Dr.'s appointment in 3 days and have to giv
