Thank you for all of you who posted information in this site. I struggle with weight my entire life. Lost much and gain some and lost more and gain more. I had breast cancer, metastasis and did a bone marrow transplant. I am doing great on that area but every time I felt a lump growing in my... 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 READ MORE

Hi. My name is Angela I'm scheduled to have surgery on February 23rd. I'm torn between the gastric bypass and the sleeve. I have friends that have had the sleeve and takes them around 1.5 years to lose 100 lbs. I want the gastric bypass because I know the results will happen faster and because... 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...

I am a 42 year old mother of 2. I am 5'5" and 247 pounds. I was approved for gastric bypass from my insurance and will undergo surgery February 9, 2015.

SO I just scheduled my first consultation for a gastric bypass for the 5th of February. I've wanted to get this procedure for quite some time but couldn't find a doctor. Maybe i just wasent looking in the right places? But this past September I attended an informational meeting and Mercy San... 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.

11/16/13 - After finding the right doctor, watching a webinar, visits to a nutritionist, a psychological evaluation, procuring a referral from my Primary Care Provider, and jumping through other various hoops, I am finally on the calendar for my gastric bypass surger. 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. 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... 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 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

No choice for Gastric Sleeve but that is the procedure I had. Dr. Buchin is a very skilled surgeon and his pre-op workup,preop class, support group and nutritionist in his office really prepared me for my surgery. I had no complications whatsoever and have already lost 125 pounds. Also his... READ MORE

I need to have another test done next week (upper GI ) to see how surver it is. So I guess I will need to wait for the results however... 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.
