23 years ago I had my stomach stapling. In the beginning it was a great success. Unfortunately, in 2001 I had to have some of the staples removed as I suffered terribly from reflux, constant vomiting and I was very dehydrated.
So, as a result, I have slowly gained back all the weight plus some since then. Now in 2017, weight loss surgery is more advanced and I am once again considering this path.
But I wanted to know if gastric sleeve is the same surgery as the stapling. Is the opening into your stomach made smaller where your food passes through or is it just your stomach that is reduced? Can you eventually eat small regular meals or will you always have to eat soups?
