I had a laparoscopic vertical sleeve on December 20th in Belgium, Vilvoorde.
I had the procedure done after 25 years on and off dieting, with sometimes great results however always ending up heavier than before, hopefully, this procedure will give me the tool to book a lifelong healthy weight.
I have discussed the procedure with the care managers in the weeks leading up to the procedure, upon arrival at the hospital I met Dr. de Bruyne, who explained the procedure. I had a 2-night stay in a real hospital (AZ Jan Portaels) and the care given was excellent. The procedure was without complications, except for nausea the first 2 days after the operation (common in sleeve patients). Post op I met Dr. Bruyne 2 weeks after the operation for a check-up, future checkups I will be with my own physician for bloodwork etc. I am happy with the procedure and the care up till now, only 2 weeks out so my experience is of course limited.
