    Hey guys, thought I should write a quick update. Had my MDT in Chichester on Friday (1st March) and got approved for a sleeve at the end of summer.. so nervous but so excited! How is everyone else’s journey pre op or post op? Any of you had/having the sleeve? Xx

    I had preference over the sleeve yes and they told me that because I was young sleeve would be best for me.. the bypass was a bit too daunting for my brain but that’s just me! Ooo not long then! Thankyou :) please reply back and let us know how it goes! I’m 22. 5ft1 and 116kg so I have to lose quite a bit.. hoping i will!!! What are yours? What op are you hoping for and what hospital are you going to? Xz
