It was a week before Thanksgiving in 2010. I had just left my family doctor with disheartening news. I sat in the wheelchair that I had lived in for the past 3 years (I could not walk more then 10 feet) looking at the leaves falling and feeling the late fall breeze in my face. I had arthritis in my knees and one hip.
Hi, my name is Joanne. I just wanted to share my story about my experience with the Gastric Sleeve. I had my surgery on December 27, 2010. The first two weeks were really hard. I didn’t think I was going to make it!
