Pam Meier – Gastric Sleeve Surgery, June 2020
I would just like to let those watching the live webinar that there is such much information on the MBC website—pre-op diet, post-op diet, vitamins.. print that information off, highlight really important stuff and study it!! Watch as many webinars prior to surgery. I learned something new each time I watched!! Best wishes to everyone!!
