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. I didn't care if I died on the table because as far as I was concerned I was dead already. My surgery was in 2001 long before anyone knew much about it.... READ MORE

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 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

I'm excited to get this started. Reading reviews the recovery process sounds a bit scary, but knowledge is power, right? I'm in this 100% and ready to feel healthier, and hopefully have much less pain. I'm a breast cancer survivor and fought hard to survive, and due to the weight gain I feel... READ MORE

My experience, pre-op to gastric bypass surgery has been seamless. I've been extremely fortunate to be in the hands of a Bariatric Center of Excellence hospital/surgeon. Literally, from beginning to end, the process has taken less than four months...from my very first informative seminar...to... READ MORE
