    What's the difference between the sleeve and bypass. Can I be rude and ask why you've chosen the bypass over the sleeve?

    Sleeve works via restriction, bypass works via restriction and malabsorption.
    Sleeve isn't recommended if you have reflux already as it can make it worse.
    Bypass is not recommended if you have malabsorption issues already (like brittle bones, osteopenia etc)

    Default Choosing a Dr for gastric sleeving

    I had the sleeve 2 years ago. Best thing I ever did. I lost 52kg and have maintained for a year.

    It's a long story but I am happy to share my experiences with anyone. Please feel free to PM me with any questions.

    But it is definitely something I do not regret at all !

    Nope not at all, this time of year I rarely eat because of the heat and usually just live on whatever on the go smoothies I have time to make when running to do Christmas shopping and end of year kids school activities

    How long did it take you to lose the weight ? Did you have any problems with any food ?

    I lost most of my weight in the first year 45kg. Then over the last year I've lost another 7/8kg and I fluctuate the same 2kg (depending on time of the month)
    I can now eat pretty my everything. I choose not to eat pasta/rice as it fills me up too quickly and it's too heavy. But everything else isn't a problem.
    I can still drink gin & tonic. I enjoy bread. I still can't eat and drink at the same time and now I'm fit and healthy which is the best part of it all.

    I tend to eat fish when I go out to dinner as it's easier for me to digest. I'm a cheap date as I only ever order an entrée.
