  1. Gastric Sleeve Journeys

    Journeys getting a gastric sleeve start before the surgery and will continue until long after the surgery, forever. This category is dedicated to journeys with the gastric sleeve.

    1. This is where you can start a thread about your journey getting a gastric sleeve, and document your success story. Pick a descriptive title for your thread. Some examples would be using your actual forum nickname like: "MyNickname's Journey Getting Sleeved" or you can use your realname, like "Mike's Sleeve Journey". Documenting your journey will help others and will also be good for you to reference back later and remember how you were feeling during your journey. + Post New Thread
