Sleeve gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy

I've had the sleeve done. I lost quite a bit of weight. But, due to health issues, I've gained it back. Is there a way to go in and have surgery again?

Severe sweating after every meal

Severe sweating after every meal

I'm 3+ years post op (VSG) sleeve surgery. I severely sweat with EVERY meal no matter what it is... Sometimes up to 30 minutes afterwards. It doesn't matter what I'm eating, even if it's just a protein shake. Does anyone else have this problem? It's not dumping with EVERY MEAL...no matter what I'm eating.

Embarrassment over bigger arms, how do you get over it?

Embarrassment over bigger arms, how do you get over it?

Hi there! I'm new, and this question has been on my mind since I joined... I have bigger arms, and they are what I'm most embarrassed about aside from my huge thighs... I was wondering if anyone has overcome embarrassment and worn shirts with no sleeves? How did it feel? Have you ever overcome embarrassment when it comes to shirts that show your arms, if they are bigger? I just don't know how to do it... I've covered up my entire life.

How difficult is the diet, for gastric sleeve surgery, to stick to?

How difficult is the diet, for gastric sleeve surgery, to stick to?

Ive researched the surgery quite extensively and the diet is extremely minimal. Which i understand. However i love food. The textures. The smell. And of course the taste. Im scared that i would not be able to stick with such a minimal diet for a year. Pluss once the weight is lost how does one not regain the weight once a regular diet is reintroduced? I dont know anyone personaly whoes had this done. Im afraid its the only option i have left.
