I started off being told about sleeve surgery by a friend that underwent the process and had very good results. I then planned to have one in April 2015. However a bout of cellulitis and a couple of days in hospital meant that I had to bring the operation closer as my sleep apnoea was deemed too... READ MORE

Hello Everyone! First I would like to thank you for sharing your journey. It has been an inspiration for me to start my own. I have been on the fence for a couple of years now.

Excited and terrified is the only way I can describe how I am feeling. reading all the blogs and reviews I know in my heart of hearts this is the right choice for me - however traveling from Canada to Mexico for surgery to improve my quality of life seems wrong! why do we not have better access...

I've struggled with my weight since I was a child. I wavered from thin to chubby my entire life until I met my husband 12 years ago. I was able to keep my weight in check by being absolutely obsessed with it. When I met my husband I started to lose control. He's bigger than me and isn't... READ MORE

I have been considering bariatric surgery for a number of years now and for a number of reasons, which I will go into further down. I always knew that I didn't want a Lap Band: I have more weight to lose than is feasible with a Lap Band, I don't want the hassle of the port and the continuous... READ MORE

I have always been a big girl my whole life. My joke when people start talking about what size they were in high school is I went from 4T to plus size...unfortunately its not much of a joke. I always remember my dad saying "you would be so much prettier if you just lost the weight". I have... READ MORE

I really wanted to live my life in way where I could go and do anything at anytime without my self esteem (which was highly lacking at the time) and my lack of mobility getting in the way. I was just engaged and I wanted to improve my health so that I could really spend the rest of my life with... READ MORE

My journey began on November 18 of this year. I was scheduled to have surgery over a year ago and chickened out about a month prior to surgery.

Today I went to a seminar on the "sleeve"; and I'm working to see if my insurance will cover it. If it doesn't I will pay out of pocket. The seminar really helped ease my fears of it all. Many of the staff were former patients and very sincere! Looking forward to doing this! Hopefully my... READ MORE
