Weighing 22 stone (308lb) at 5'7" and having diabetes, injecting insulin 4 times a day the future looked very bleak. I was then thrown a lifeline by my GP who referred me for a gastric bypass. I had to jump through many hoops and eventually had surgery 18 months later. I have not... READ MORE

My Dr. in Austin Texas saved my life! In June 2007, I went into surgery weighing 265 lbs. Today I weigh 140 and feel like a million bucks. I will turn 51 in June and am so happy I had this procedure done. My weight had yo-yoed my whole life and once I was 100 lbs. overweight, I knew that I... READ MORE

I had gastric bypass, RNY, on August 22, 2007. I started out at 267 lbs at 5'7". I'm down 97 lbs and I'm 20 lbs away from my goal, with minimal excess skin problems. It has truly been the best thing that I have ever done for myself. I am more aware of my true self now. I am also more aware... READ MORE

I had been obese my entire life. Every doctor visit, regardless of reason also included conversation about losing weight. I hated it. I hated how I felt, I hated how people treated me and I hated myself. After 40 years of ridicule and constantly mounting health problems I began researching... READ MORE

As a child I was average weight, I did not have problems until after I had my first of four children. I have been on too many diets to even remember them all, Dr. Stillman, weight watchers, I was injected with some kind of placenta, phenteramine , etc. I could go on and on, take it off put it...

I've been a heavy set girl all my life. I've always been fairly comfortable with myself and all my curves. I've been active until getting arthritis and mobility being cut drastically making exercise impossible. I'd been interested in surgery but didn't want to seem lazy. However now it's needed...

I had a lap band in 2009 only lost 27 lbs. On 12/15/2014 will have the band removed and bypass done. Goal is to lose 65 lbs and go from 235 to 175 lbs. Hopefully it will cure my sleep apnea, diabetes, high blood pressure etc. The band experience was not pleasant for me. A lap band is not the answer. READ MORE

Please don't get this surgery done. Unless you have over 100 lbs to lose. I wanted to only lose 80 lbs. This surgery is terribly overrated. The incisions are terrible, the food you can eat is disgusting. I have chosen to not eat at all because I am tired of jello and cream of anything soups... READ MORE

I am booked in for a Jan op. I'm not worried about the operation at all. I'm too scared to imagine myself lighter in case for some reason it doesn't work.

I am not sure what I want to write, I just know that I need to write. I expect to look in the mirror and like what I see looking back. I expect to run and play with my 10 year old daughter who looks at me with a sad look when I tell her I am too tired to play. I am 25 days away and I am... READ MORE

So this review is maybe 3 years overdue. I was 35 years old, 5'2" and 280 lbs when I decided on the Gastric Bypass procedure.
