I've been doing all the research on the DS and then my doctor stopped after removing my lapband and doing the sleeve. I was in so much intense cry out loud general anesthesia nausea and back pain that I couldn't hear anything he was saying. He'll come by at point today, but not sure when. I WILL get the second half, but I do recall him saying he usually waits a year in between when doing it in stages. But that wasn't the plan!! Anyway, right now I'm just trying I learn more about the sleeve, something I never even considered. First I wanted bypass until I learned about DS. So I'm looking for info on recovery time, what a sleeve diet should look like (I know it's clear for now and then liquid then soft) long-term, most common complications or just most significant lifestyle change. Right now, in hospital one day post-op, I can drink almost as much as I want. Heartburn and chest gurgling has been the only issue. Lots of info would be greatly appreciated. I just didn't see this coming and have months of research that was done only in DS, to catch up on about Sleeve!! Thanks in advance!
