Hi, on 21st May I am having my Gastric Sleeve surgery by Shaw Somers and I’m nervous but excited. Anyone else had this surgery? I’ve noticed it’s not offered that much by Streamline Surgical but after researching all the options I have asked for this surgery in particular. I do hope they have sufficient experience in this procedure as stuff can go wrong but I have every confidence in Mr Somers.

It would be good to find others who are having or have had the Sleeve though? Lots of people in the US are choosing this over the Bypass and the Band now so I hope I’ve made the right choice.

Hi there and welcome to our friendly forum.

So excited for you – your op date will come round SO quickly.

Shaw Somers is a magnificent surgeon (he did my bypass almost five years ago) so you can rest assured that you are in the very safest of hands. May I ask why you chose the sleeve? It’s true not many people on here have had it but there are a few. Trouble is, they are probably too busy leading their new healthier and fitter life to come along and tell you about it!I personally know people who have had it done. One of my friends has lost over 25st!!!

Please keep in touch and let us know how it goes as it will be really interesting for anyone else considering the same surgery.
