Q, Which surgery is better, gastric sleeve or gastric band?
A, This is highly debatable, but from a mortality rate perspective, the gastric lap band is far safer and arguably as effective.
Q, Will I bee in pain after my surgery, and if so for how long?
A, The level of pain is different for everyone as people have different pain thresholds. You can expect pain, it may be mild or severe but one thing is for certain, almost everyone feels some degree of pain and discomfort.
Q, Can I really die from gastric sleeve surgery or is it just a myth?
A, Yes, there is a small but very real chance that you will die from gastric sleeve surgery.
Q, Is it possible to gain weight after having a gastric sleeve operation?
A, It really depends on what you eat. The operation is designed to help you reduce the amount you eat, but if you have lots of chocolate, cream or any other high calorie foods, especially those that can slip down the throat easily, then yes you can gain weight.
Q, Is there any way I can get a gastric sleeve operation for free
A, It is very unlikely although you never know, you may get lucky. Perhaps you could contact universities and offer yourself as a candidate for medical students to practice on. I'm just speculating, I have no idea if it is even possible, but it might be worth a shot.
Q, Is it safe for me to have a gastric sleeve operation if I am very unfit?
A, The lower your level of fitness, the greater the risk. The same applies to increased age and obesity in general.
Surgery carries a risk of death, nothing is more serious than that. Please try all other avenues before risking your life.
