    Hi Kelly,
    Just checking in after a long while playing the waiting game and I am finally scheduled for July 31st... seven days and counting. Starting my preop liquid diet Friday. So looks like you are through with your surgery and home trying to figure out this new life. Would love to hear how it's going!

    Well I think I have it pretty well decided that I am going to go with the sleeve for the same reasons you list. Although I do have a bit of a sweet tooth one gentleman told me that the surgery cured his. But anyway dumping syndrome in general sounds horrible. Keep thinking about Al Roker having his little dumping problem at the White House... no thanks! Anyway very exciting that you have a date. Keep us up to date!

    Hi Kelly!
    My appt went ok l... when I got there my surgeon asked what my surgery preference was.... I said Sleeve. Of course I got the response that this was a new surgery and not much long term data on the procedure. And then he gave me info on both sleeve and gastric bypass, and said in my case it was a 50/50 decision as to whether the sleeve or bypass would be best for me...my choice! In his opinion bypass was the "gold standard" surgery and if I was his wife his recommendation would be for bypass. I'm so confused! Of course I want the best chance for long term weight loss.
  9. Surgery date finally scheduled for July 2nd!!!
