    Totally normal to feel nervous.
    I had never had any kind of surgery before I was sleeved so really had no idea what to expect.

    I'm sure those of us lucky enough to have supportive partners do really well.
    My partner has certainly changed the way he eats since I had my surgery and looks (and feels) much better for it.
