Not for the faint of heart

Everything is on YouTube these days, so it's no surprise that the type of surgery I received (Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy) is viewable there.  I never went looking for one before surgery (because it didn't occur to me to do so) and after surgery I wasn't sure I really wanted to see it.  Today I ran across a post from a fellow Sleeve friend.  She posted this video and I watched.  It's really amazing.  And a little disgusting.  So, if you have a weak stomach, I don't suggest you watch this:

I find it quite amazing to watch.  To think they can do all this through a few small holes in an abdomen.  To think they did this (or at least something very similar) to MY stomach is a bit surreal.
