My gynecologist recently referred me for something called a "gastric sleeve". She says given my size, and everything I've done to try to lose weight, I'm a good candidate for it. She says that the gastric sleeve doesn't come with the side effects that a gastric bypass or lap band come with. she's referred about a dozen patients and all have been very happy with the outcome. she's seeing an average weight loss of 50-60 pounds in 6 months. but I'm a little nervous about having surgery bc last time I had a bad reaction to anesthesia and ended up on a ventilator in the ICU for 2 days. So I'm interested in some testimonials from actual people. what experience/knowledge do you have with this particular procedure?

      You can lose the same amount without the surgery by doing Intermittent fasting. And you can pretty much eat whatever you're craving during your open eating window.
