That is the question that has been running through my mind every time I think about my surgery. "Will I be the one ..."
... that takes a long time to recover?
... that hates the sleeve and wishes she never did the surgery?
... that doesn't lose weight?
... that has complications?
... that dies?
I guess these are questions that will be answered eventually (and if I suddenly stop blogging then maybe the last one happened).
I have talked to a variety of different people who have had this surgery and even though there have been some post-operative complications, they have been few and far between and they have been dealt with in a very positive manner.
I'm still terrified. I think though that it would be unhealthy for me to be any other way. I believe that you need to have some level of apprehension when making a life changing decision.
I really do hope though that the question will be
... that has a wonderful experience, loses tons of weight, gets super healthy, recovers quickly and most importantly, doesn't die?
