I read your post and wondered if you got any replies? I haven't booked a date yet but am looking into December. It seems there isn't much info on this forum and I'd love to read a real recent experience as I keep going back on my decision because I'm afraid mostly of complications as my insurance won't cover anything related to surgery not done thru insurance which worries me.
you have nothing to worry about they will take great care of you, take some gas x strips with you they can come in handy, other than that the staff is wonderful..hotel was nice and very accommodating.
I can tell you now that I feel better than I have in years, and the best part is after all these years I no longer have to worry about it, its out of my hands such a relief and I am not hungry, at all makes things so much easier .
If i can help in anyway just let me know
Update...two and a half years after sleeve. I am 5'9" was 210 the day of surgery in 2013. I got down to 145 after the first six months or so, which was a little too light for my frame and height. Now I am 160, and I can live with that. Ideally I would like 155, by hey 5 extra lbs is much better than 55 extra lbs.
