I had WLS in July 2017…..I went with the gastric sleeve. I lost 80 pounds and got down to 135 pounds. I was in a solid size 6.Last June, after gastric sleeve I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was caught very early and my prognosis is excellent. I actually lost some weight during chemo but I have gradually put on an extra 15 pounds and now at 151 pounds.after gastric sleeve I am doing my protein shakes religiously and eating lean protein and vegetables. I am just now easing back into exercise as my body allows. The fatigue from having chemo really has kept me from being able to exercise.
after gastric sleeve I also had a bilateral mastectomy and will undergo reconstruction surgery in the near future.At this time, I still have what are called tissue expanders in that help stretch the chest muscles for the placement of implants. These tissue expanders had saline added over a period of a few months.
