Gastric Sleeve - Your thoughts and opinions or your very own experience?

Hello Everyone!

I've been reading a lot on gastric sleeve surgery. I know there's so much that goes into daily life post surgery as well as some who have gained the weight back unfortunately.

A little about myself. I am 5'2" and cw is 219. I've been overweight my entire adult life. Growing up I was always very slender. I met my husband and weighed 115lbs. After our first child I stayed around 155 but after our last child I've never gone below 165. Its been a yo-yo roller-coaster for the last 19 years.

I started a new job 9/2018 and had weighed 179 when I started here. In a little over a year I went from 179 to 225. I wont lie, its been depressing.

The well known place I work has many, many large people. Recently several associates have opted for sleeve surgery. I look at them and their results are just amazing.

I can't help feel this is something I should pursue. I'm curious about your own personal experience or perhaps someone you know?

    Maybe surgery and therapy would help the most.
