    Default Hi from IL

    My name is Jeff and I have started the process for Bariatric Surgery. I have the first step, a virtual Zoom Conference next Monday, May 18th. I searched for a forum and found this one to learn as much as I can about the process and for support during the process. I am VERY excited about the opportunity to do this and a little nervous as well.

    Hi Jeff. We all started our sleeve process with a conference or support group. Learn everything about the process. For me the surgery was easy. The recovery was quick and the weight loss was substantial. I started at my conference at 307 and 6 months after my surgery I was 208. Two and a half years later I am at 212. Best decision I ever made. Good luck. Stop back here, lots of good info and great people.
