I am so sorry about your husband, I can't imagine what you both will face in the time to come. I wanted to have the sleeve; however, my surgeon was dead set on my having bypass. I am so glad that I took her advice. I am Type 2 diabetic and came off several of my meds within the first month. I agree with other users, any weight loss surgery is very personal and very different for each person. I do not experience dumping anymore, but other foods trigger the same effect. Talk to your doctor, weigh the options (no pun intended) and decide what you think will be best for you. The surgery is a great tool given to us. It is up to us to use that tool the right way.
