hi skylark, Never had this procedure done, but would like to know why your physician is not helping u with support or at least having a support group of those who have had the sleeve procedure. It seems like a lot of people who have this done need help and support. I have thought about doing this, but the negativity about it scares me. Let me know how u are doing and if u think it is worth doing. I need to lose at least 80 lbs and my BMI is 39. Would I be considered a candidate for this? Drop me a line or two on your ideas. Josee
Hi Channing, I have not had a bypass, but have been thinking about it for awhile now. Have tried so many diets and not much works for me. I suppose it is partly because I am not dedicated to the lifestyle. How much weight have u lost? Is it worth doing? I do have a pet. She is a kitty named bitsy. She is a tuxedo style girl. I love her sooo much. She is my baby girl. Do u have a pet? JoseeView Thread
