Hi! I'm undergoing bariatric surgery soon and my doctor says i'm a good candidate for both the gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y) and the Sleeve, so i can choose which one i want done. I know a lot of people who've had the bypass but only one who has had the sleeve.

Has anyone here had sleeve surgery or is having one soon? Were you able to lose weight and keep it of? I welcome any opinions and testimonies!!!

I had sleeve done 5 months ago. 5 stone gone. No problems but feel free to ask any questions.

Hi @lovenot ! Thanks for answering. Do you mind telling me what was you pre surgery weight and your height? I'm definitely leaning towards the sleeve as i find it safer.
