I heard news of a local man (that I knew yrs ago), that passed away last week from complications after a Gastric Bypass. One of my supervisors told me this week that she had the Gastric bypass 4 yrs ago, and 'almost died', was in a coma, etc.. Another aquaintance said that she had a major bleed after her Bypass, too... All of these things are reasons I have always said that I would NEVERRRR have Gastric bypass surgery.
Fast forward to me hearing about/learning about the Sleeve in late January of this year. Immediately, it was as if Angels sang. Wow, that sounds 'do-able' to me. Less invasive, less risky.. And, not even 2 months later, I have done all the pre-things (all but one last day-long session to prepare us for surgery and after) and have a date to be Sleeved!
Should I be scared??? I've not let all of this scare me, but... It is something I wanted to ask your opinion or thoughts on. Does anyone, or has anyone, died from having the sleeve surgery?
I think I read that there is like a 98% success rate with the sleeve, as far as no complications??
