Hole in stomach due to gastric sleeve and pregnant
About two years ago my sister had the gastric sleeve surgery and unfornuately now there is a hole in her stomach. She was told by her doctors that she should not get pregnant for 2 or 3 years but she just found out that she is 3 months pregnant. She wants to keep the baby, but I am so concerned for her wellbeing as well as the baby. Has anyone gone through a similiar situation and had a healthy pregnancy and baby? She is looking for a doctor now to assist her with this pregnancy, but I was hoping to get some information about this type of situation just to help me help her.
