1. When I attended a weightloss surgery seminar at Alvarado Hospital earlier this year, Dr. Ellner stated that with sleeve surgery, a leak can occur at anytime during your life after surgery. I was under the impression that this was possible only up to a certain time after surgery and once it healed, it would no longer be a risk. I had never heard this and am wondering if anyone here has also been told this or knows anything about it?
2 Also, with the sleeve, what happens if a person develops stomach cancer and there isn't enough stomach to cut away?
I have also posted this on the sleeve forum.
