Should I be concerned with gastric sleeve complications?

I recently read a study that showed the percentage of people who experience serious complications from gastric sleeve surgery is actually less than those who undergo a gastric bypass. While that’s comforting, I’m still concerned that any complication will cost a lot of money, which I won’t have since I’m spending years of savings on the surgery itself. Plus insurance won’t cover anything.

you should be concerned with any procedure that has potential complications, but after looking at the pros and cons, you should make a determination as to whether or not it makes sense for you and whether the risks are worth the rewards in your own case.  only you can answer that question.
