I was very upset that I didn't get the sleeve. Drs wouldn't do it because of my pacemaker. Instead I got the balloon. I have lost 30 lbs. I should have lost more. I have had trouble I feel like I'm carrying a baby. It moves around just like a baby. And at times it's very uncomfortable. I'm a side sleeper I can only sleep on my right side. The balloon finds it place and settles down. On my left side it will not stop moving. I sleep with a small pillow that holds my stomach when I sleep. I have followed the diet they gave me. And drinking a lot of water. Haven't been able to exercise I have a hurt heal. I really think the balloon needed more fluid. I'm coming to the end to have it taken out. I really feel I wasted my money.
