Gastric Bypass or Gastric Sleeve?
- Last updated: 1 year ago
G'day my name is Andy and I intend of having weight loss surgery in June 2016. First time and a little nervous. My Doctor said he would recommend Gastric Bypass as I have " sweet tooth ". I read in a forum about some patients developing a problem with alcoholism. I am a recovering alcoholic, sober 13 years 6 months 3 days yesterday. Worried about putting my recovery at risk. I am an active meetings person in AA.My wife had Gastric Sleeve operation last August and she has lost 25 kg + so far. She Plateaued. More work to be done. I noticed my wife does a lot of " grazing eating ".I am 148kg and 43 years old.Interesting to read others experience post surgery.Thank you for your time.Andy
