Making the decision to have Gastric Sleeve was a long thought out decision for me to make with many things to consider. The biggest decision to consider for me was whether I should go to TJ for this procedure. Since my insurance did not cover this procedure it turned out that TJ was a good affordable option for me.
From the time of my arrival to the time of my departure I was treated very well. The driver that picked us up from the airport, the hotel staff and the doctors & nursing staff at the hospital were great.
When we went to the hospital, the staff were ready to great and inform us as to what to expect. We met the nurses and doctors. The doctors told us what the procedure would be like and how long it would take. Though the doctors were friendly, I have to say that the nursing staff were some of the best. They treated me with a tenderness and respectfulness that I will remember for a very long time. They really did so much to put me at ease and reassure me that they were there for me; ready to help with whatever I needed. Those gals are the heart of that hospital.
The recovery from my gastric sleeve has not been as bad as I thought it would be. Each day after surgery got a easier and easier. Once getting home, I have had to relearn the signals that my body gives me as far as how much to eat and when I am full. When I see how little food I require at a setting, my brain thinks I should eat more, but my body say's no more ~ in no uncertain terms.
I have lost 48 pounds in the month since having the gastric sleeve done. Let's see where the rest of this journey takes me!
