    Re: Where do I start?

    Hi, Dgunstone. Three years ago I joined this forum to explore the sleeve. If it were not so costly, I might have taken that route. I still read posts here from time to time to continue my...

    Re: Keto bread

    Re: I believe it's the end for me

    I couldn't afford the sleeve and then discovered the low-carb/high-fat way of eating. It's virtually stopped my reflux, and I've lost weight without battling my appetite. Wishing that you find a path...

    Re: Concerns About Future Acid Reflux

    Hi, hi, hi. I was in this forum about two years ago, have since discovered keto/lchf with great success, rather than pursue the sleeve option, but sometimes revisit here for overall learning.

    Thanks, everybody.

    Given the financial blow and possible health negatives, I think I'll not opt for a sleeve.
