    Vertical Sleeve
  1. I have Hashimoto's Disease and I am scheduled for Gastric Bypass sleeve in May. I am at 214 lbs but have been gaining weight about 10 lbs every year. I exercise and walk over 10,000 steps a day. I try to watch my calorie and carb count with every meal but with my thyroid issues it seems like a losing battle. My question is has anyone that has had the sleeve with thryoid issues and lost weight? Was it more difficult and slower because of thyroid issues? I just hope that getting the sleeve will benefit me at all with the thyroid and will it be worth it or am I going to have this done and it won't really help me? I am four weeks away from surgery and just nervous if this is really going to help me?
