    Hi Brooke,

    Because the sleeve changes your hormonal make-up, I tend to think it will help you. While your condition is rare, excess weight gain caused or aggravated by chronic cortisol secretion...

    Re: Slow losing..

    You are on very low calories, Lindy Jo. You might lose more on higher calories.
    If you are exercising as well, you must get pretty tired.
    I would talk to the dietician about putting your calories...
