I have one regret, I wish I had done this 10 years ago. This was the best decision that I have made. It was a lot of work to get everything done before my surgery, but all so very much worth it. on day of surgery I weighed 343. Seven weeks later I am down to 309. I feel so much better and...

Kia ora, I am currently awaiting a gastric bypass operation, which will be done in 3 days time.

I have a good weight loss, and after about 2- 3 months,... READ MORE

I had pain for the 2 first days after de procedure, but at the 6th day after it, I began working. At the beginning you get tired... READ MORE
