Sleeved!

Ok, my last few Posts have been all over the place.  Get sleeved don't get sleeved but remove the lap band either way.  When I got to the hospital they had me down for sleeve and or band removal.  my wonderful surgeon sat me down and listen to all my concerns.  He said that lap band people who got the sleeve was generally very happy, he's never had anyone to go through having a sleeve that regretted it.

So I did it, I'm sleeved.  My surgeon also said that I have a problem with my intestines,that they're not where they should be.  My intestines out what were adhered to scar tissue from my gallbladder surgery 15 years ago.  He said I may end up in another surgery down the road to correct it.

Now it's time to work that sleeve and lose the weight that I need to stay healthy for my family my husband and my grandkids.
