    Lorna, assuming you're a US citizen, you have access to all civil rights embodied by the US Constitution and all its amendments, including the right of personal expression.

    But when you repeatedly say things like the refrain you've been repeating here lately, i.e., "Gastric band and sleeve almost always need revisions of some kind," you're going to continue to get the same response from me, which is ...

    Bullshit!

    The reason that the sleeve is now done is because when it WAS *merely* the first step in some WLS surgeries, its stand-alone efficacy was realized by surgeons who saw the results it obtained in patients who'd had it.

    The specific WLS that patients choose should be a decision that's well informed by consultations with qualified bariatric surgeons based on each patient's situation. The sleeve isn't for everyone. In fact, NONE of the WLS surgeries is ideal for everyone.

    Here are some actual facts: Half of ALL WLS patients, no matter which surgery they have undergone, regain at least half of the excess weight they lost. And half of all WLS patients, no matter which surgery they have undergone, maintain at least half of their weight loss. Those are the actual stats, based on long-term research, not your personal anecdotal experience. Both your lapband experience and your sleeve experience did not result in your long-term success. I'm happy you're continuing to pursue a third WLS opportunity for long-term weight loss success.

    Of course, you are welcome to continue generalizing your personal experience to predict others' success in any ways you choose.

    And I may continue to respond.

    To Christie13. Yes. I am doing fairly well. Protein is the same with me. Too sweet. I'm drinking Muscle Milk. It's the only one I found I like but sweet, it is. So I do get concerned if I am getting enough. So what I have decided is find a plain protein - no flavor - and add to my soups to be sure I'm getting the 60 or more grams per day.

    Medicare covered 100%. Gastric sleeve in 2011 was covered under Kaiser So Ca through my previous employer.

    Ok ya'll. I'm two weeks out today. I am feeling awesome; although scale hasn't moved. I'm not upset because I've been there, done that. I say the scale is just hatin' 'cause it's going down, lol. But tonight at 6 I'm going to a free boot camp class to see how I like it. More of an observance to see what I can tolerate at the moment. I already spoke to instructors and they know my deal. Is there anyone that has taken a boot camp class before or after surgery?

    I was sleeved in 2013. I need surgery on Monday the 17th because I have Barretts Esophagus and biopsies were done. negative, which is good. I have hiatal hernia and my surgeon wants to convert me to Roux N Y because this will help with acid reflux. I'm nervous...I love my sleeve and now it's going to be much smaller.
