Hi everyone, my name is Debbie and I am about to have a sleeve gastrectomy. I have previously had a gastric band but after 7 years had to have it removed. I the 4 years since I have regained 5 stones. I had forgotten quite how miserable weight gain is, I have noticed that I have started to remove myself from social activities, from being lively and involved with life I have become withdrawn and fed up. What does everyone who is addicted to food do when they are fed up .... you got it - binge.
After much soul searching and procedure research I have taken the first step and have booked my surgery. The second step was to find a forum where I could share experiences and get the help and support I am going to need in this difficult journey. So here I am looking forward to the future with trepardation.
