Hey Card fans. I am considering bariatric sleeve surgery. In this particular procedure they basically cut away about 75% of your stomache leaving it about the size of a banana. There is no bypassing of any intestines so the weight loss benefits focus on consumption more than absorption. But cutting away so much of your stomache is highly invasive and permanenet since it cannot be put back. Do any of you have any experience with this? Friends, family members, self? If so I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts regarding the procedure as well as life changes involved.
