It's good to find a book that is specifically focused from the perspective of a vertical sleeve gastrectomy patient. Provides a solid overview of information. While I can find similar information online in forums and on websites, it tends to be broadly scattered and you have to dig for it. Thank you!
Already knew a lot of this info
I was looking for a more personal perspective. This was strictly informational.
