    Default Any post-sleevers out there that TRULY regret there surgery?

    As I ponder all the changes that will happen to my body and life. I am so excited to think how life will change. I wonder though is there any people out there in this audience who have had the sleeve done that TRULY regret it and wish they could go back?

    This runs though my mind, but from what I have read I have not seen that here yet, but I do wonder?

    Would you all do it again?

    This is such a great question... In my case I would do it again 100 times over... I have never felt better than I do now two months after the surgery.. Not just with the lost weight but physical wise I feel so much better too..

    Greatest decision but early on it's hard especially if u eat one bite too much and feel sick-but goes away fast...and learn quickly..almost 3 months and I feel normal as far as healing and being able to eat any type of food. Good luck!!

    I am only 5 days out but wish I would have done it years ago. I did something for the first time tonight. I overate and man can I feel it. It hurts to overeat. not paying attention and I am paying for it now. It hurts at the highest part of your stomach, it is like a spasm.

    I am only about 2 months out, but I would definitely do it again! I have not lost anywhere near the weight I need to lose, but it feels great to be able to say I am on my way. I like that I can get full on so little food...before, I would eat everything in sight, and still not feel full. Emotionally, I feel so positive now, which I didn't before. I would look at myself and at the scales and truly despair of ever being healthy again. Then I would get so depressed. Now, I still have a very long way to go, and there have been a few stumbles along the way, but I know that I am on my way. Physically and emotionally, this is the best thing I have ever done for myself.

    Dale and all others who have posted, I so appreciate your response. From all that I read and understand it is very dificult right after surgery and doubt creeps into your mind, but as time goes by pretty much everyone I see says it is the best thing they could have done. I certainly know I have a long way to go, but I did not get here overnight! I too can eat everything in sight and it is not necessarily a certain type of food, it is just the volume of food that I can consume. My hope and goal is that by ending the possibility of me to eat the volume that this is what will give me success. I would not be able to fathom getting full on a small amount of food at this time. I guess I don't think I will be depressed because in some ways I think of food as the enemy right now, that has battled me for so many years. I will be thrilled to see the enemy retreat!

    Best wishes for healing and continued success!
