I finally have my surgery date for 3/30/17!!!!!!!!! I am getting the Gastric Sleeve and I am actually excited to get it done. I was leaning towards the Gastric Bypass but I found out I was anemic so it automatically disqualifies me for the gastric bypass. My surgeon then said that the gastric sleeve was the better option for me. Has anyone else has had this problem or similar to it? It would be awesome to get advice of how to have a speedy, manageable recovery, protein shakes..etc. Just in general . Thank you .
