Weight Loss Surgery

So after being on Peertrainer for years and battling the weight, I've decided to have weight loss surgery. I'll be having the gastric sleeve in July/August.

I'm very excited for it! I am NOT endorsing surgery or talking others into it (you've gotta find what is right for you!) , but am hoping to find some other PT members that may have had WLS. I am on the Pre-Op diet plan - this is hard!

I searched the groups, but with no luck..... anyone out there?

My sister had the surgery, she has has nothing but success. Although she has seen many people in her support group struggle. She believes exercise before surgery to be a major factor, she did as much as she could. She did follow ALL doctors order given, and the post-op doctors orders are just as important..

I wish this was the magic fix, but we still have to deal with the reasons we overeat. Have you found out any information about the success rate? How many people die from this surgery? How many people have gained the weight back? How many people have experienced great success and have lost weight and have been able to keep it off? I'm sure you've asked these questions and are not going into this eyes wide shut.

I wrote earlier about my sister-- going through a good medical program & hospital is the only way to do this. My sister had to do so many things before she could have the surgery and continues to have constant support.

I had the gastric sleeve in July 2012. I am doing great. Have lost a lot of weight. Now I need to train myself to eat healthily. I want to be healthy and thin, not just thin.
