It’s NHS which is why I’m a bit confused. I don’t have problems with acid reflux or any medical issues which would make one more suitable than the other so I think that’s why he wants it to be my decision. It’s just a difficult one.It does seem strange to have one or two appointments and then get a date, it's this private or NHS? If you hand acid reflux, the sleeve generally will make that worse, in that case bypass would be better. I'm surprised he didn't recommend what he thought would be best for you, they normally do.
If you don't eat meat, you might be better with the sleeve if you've not got acid relux, because you get malabsorbtion with the bypass and you need lots of protein. You really do need to do lots of research, look online at the pros and cons of all the different types of surgeries, they're is also the mini gastric bypass as well.
Only your team can say what LRD you'll do if any, no one here would know for sure, they are all so different. X
Yeah I eat a lot of quorn, beans etc so I might be ok but obviously a chance that might not agree with me anymore so I’d be restricted. I’m only vegetarian because I don’t like meat so suppose there’s a chance I might change after surgery too.
Sorry wasn’t clear - surgeon definitely said 4 weeks of LRD. Will obviously do as I’m told but nervous about it all!
I get the impression from fb groups and this site that most people choose bypass so I’m trying not to be swayed to just go with what everyone else says. My surgeon said he performs a 70/30 split with more people having sleeve which I thought was interesting. Just don’t seem to come across those people online as much! x
