I had the sleeve done last December and down 145 lbs in 1 year. Best thing I ever did. After you have it done get up out of bed asap and start walking. Let me know if you have any specific questions.

What happened to old fashioned exercise and dieting? I lost almost 25 pounds by not eating out anymore and doing cardio everyday. Youd be surprised how fast the weight drops with just a diet change. Eating out is a huge cause of obesity. I just cant imagine having something like inside my body. Good luck and I wish you well. Just my .02

2 years ago I lost 100lbs by dieting and exercise, and i gained it back plus some, I recently just got custody of my son and getting to the gym is very tough between working 80-90 hrs a week and taking care of him is a chore omits self. It's easy to judge when you don't know what's going on in people's life's.

Lost 10lbs in the last two weeks just by simply cutting my intake in half. 20 more and I'll be happy. :toast:

Not trying to be a DICK just heard the same speech from everyone. I just figured if my insurance is gonna pay for it what the hell.
This is not a miracle cure..... You still have to diet or you will just stretch the stomach out and gain the weight back.

Very true it is also possible to rip/tear the stitches/sleeve/ band
And if your food is still in larger chunks it is easy to choke my buddy was on a liquid diet for 3 months and his 3yo ate more than he could
He was miserable for weeks he just had his first beer December his surgery was about 2 years ago

I know I excersize but sitting behind the throttle of a locomotive for 12hours a day can pack on the pounds......but I'm back down to 200.... Still need more reduction..... L

I have to be on a liquid diet for 4 weeks, but the sleeve isn't as intensive as bypass surgery.

And you don't need a gym..

Working for the railroad you can afford to eat healthy(outside lanes of store).

How tall are you? My dad weighs 325 and is 6'3" and wouldn't ever think of him having this done. I do know of a few that have done it.
