My husband and I both had the surgery within a month of each other. We had one of the best surgeons, a pioneer in the field who retired a couple of years ago. Our surgery was in 2003. My husband lost 180 pounds and I lost 160 pounds. We neither one had complications and I attribute much of... READ MORE

I was over 400# could not bend over without swooning, could not take a step without a walker. Needed help on steps. I was ready to lay down and die, I was literally moments from being in a wheelchair. I had been researching it for years and finally decided its now or die. So I did it. And... READ MORE

I had Gastric Bypass surgery done in Sept. 2008. I weighed 259 pounds on the day of surgery. I had diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, achy joints...you name it.

I kept gaining weight the more I tried to lose it. Carrying around an extra person in poundage took a huge toll on my psyche, my confidence, my back and knees. I was desperate and fearful that I wouldn't even make it to retirement at the rate I was going so I cashed in my retirement investment... READ MORE

Pro's = fast weight loss, improved health Con's = Surgery Improved health, mobility, live longer, self esteem I had a very easy time of it. The only thing I would wish is that there was more support and guidance for us out there. With the help of my support group I pretty... READ MORE

The best thing in the world was the hope to walk and have a normal life. To be able to walk, fly, ride a bus, go up a step. I had to get the GA insurance commission help me with the health insurance coverage, which they did; but because the band around my stomach was considered cosmetic surgery,... READ MORE

I am so happy that I had gastric bypass surgery! I simply cannot tell you what a huge difference it has made in my life. I was not the traditional candidate because I was not 100 pounds overweight. However my diabetes was out of control regardless of what my Dr and I did to try to control... READ MORE

I was given the gift of Bariatric Surgery on December 10, 2007. Initially tipping the scales at 316 pounds (that I would admit), I am now twice the woman in half the body. I am successfully maintaining a 160-pound weight loss, but perhaps more importantly, went from frumpy to fabulous in about... READ MORE

We were married 28 years ago - and at that time weighed in the 'slightly overweight' BMI... after 28 years of marriage, we both were morbidly obese. Both of us had complications due to our obesity - HTN, asthma, diabetes - just to name a few. Now after 18 months we have lost >320... READ MORE

My copay was 375. I had it done almost two years ago now... and haven't regretted it. Because of my age and other health issues, I did/do have a lot of loose skin, and the surgeries for that are more expensive for me and have been less comfortable because of the size of the incisions. I... READ MORE

After 30 years of obesity and trying every diet known to man I couldn't get this surgery fast enough. My surgery was covered by insurance.
