I've been considering weight loss surgery for years. Based on what I know, and the experience of a co-worker who had the Gastric Sleeve surgery I narrowed down my options to this type of surgery. However, I'm not the type to jump in without knowing every detail and Doctors don't always tell you everything. So I bought this book, and I'm so glad I did. After reading this book I was able to have an informed discussion with my doctor about the gastric sleeve surgery. I was finally able to feel satisfied that I had all the information I needed to make a decision. So I've scheduled my gastric sleeve surgery and I'm really excited, nervous, but I feel ready and I know it's going to change my life.
