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.

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

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

Hello everyone. I'm new to the site. Im a pre-op patient getting ready for Gasto bypass Jan 22. I'm excited and scared at the same time. I realize everyone different but I'm wondering what some averages of weight loss that everyone had at 3months, 6months, 9months and one year. FYI I am 42,... READ MORE

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...

December 11 is the big day.... READ MORE

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.

I had gastric bypass 11 years ago. I was one of the first lap surgeries in Kansas City. I knew this would be a life altering surgery if I survived. Yes, I had a come to Jesus meeting, and got blessings from my family. At 37 and single I even had my WILL done. Obviously I made it and ended... 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
