hey everybody!  is it true that your stomach can stretch with this procedure?

Your sleeve stomach will gradually stretch as time goes on, but will never be the size your old stomach used to be.

I'm nearly 9 years out, and I can eat about one-third as much as I could pre-op.And I can certainly eat enough that were it not for the permanent malabsorption I would be gaining weight.

Yes, but nothing to really be concerned about.  I used to eat like a toddler.  Now I eat like a light eater.  I'm satisfied with the actual recommended serving sizes now.
