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

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. I had spent years doing Dr assisted weight loss, weight watchers and so on. I just could not drop the weight. So I was finally fed up with not being able to keep up with... READ MORE

I am 28 years old, married, no children but two beautiful dogs :). I started gaining weight in junior high and hit the obese mark in high school.

Cleveland Clinic has been Phenominal everyone is great there! Dr. Cetin & Dr. Brethgauer explained the procedure in so much detail. I felt so comfortable in my decision when I left. I am hoping to be scheduled for my procedure at the end of April. I want to be as healthy as I can be for my kids... READ MORE

I went through the program with Kaiser, and I had a $500 copayment, I don't know what it would cost if I paid for it. I went through the required classes, but everything is so focused on surgery day that everything else goes in one ear and out the other. I lost 150# and had tons of extra hanging... READ MORE

My goal is to be down 100# in 2 years. Not going to be as easy as people think but ready to not feel like I'm waiting for a horrible medical issue to start from being so overweight. Ready to feel good about myself. Ready for the help that the Gastric Sleeve will give me to kickstart my new life! READ MORE
