Kia ora, I am currently awaiting a gastric bypass operation, which will be done in 3 days time. I have always been overweight and have tried every diet to help me lose the weight and keep it off, but the cycle has been the same every time. I have a good weight loss, and after about 2- 3 months,... READ MORE

I know the surgery saved my life. I had my surgery at 325 pounds. The procedure was in Atlanta. I am now 42 and weigh 150 pounds. I am trying to lose 25 more pounds and then have a tummy tuck. It hurts, it is so worth it though. The drain removal was the worst part. Keep on the binder as long as... READ MORE

At this moment I can say it was worth it. This is a drastic change you make in your life, but once you begin to see the positive changes, everything goes excellent. 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

I also had to have all the fluid pulled out and start over. Now having problems with being to tight or not tight enough. Anyone... READ MORE

I've been preparing for my upcoming surgery for the past 3 months. 3 more before the insurance company will let me have the surgery. I am tentatively scheduled for May 9th.

First I have to say to people going to Mexico for surgery DONT! You will need a Doctor for follow up care and no one is going to take you if they didnt do your surgery, I have a neighbor who had her surgery out of state and almost died searching for a DR to take her! I had my surgery on April... READ MORE

My procedure went fine. I lost 100 pounds in under a year. Changed my personality and me. I was a casual drinker with my friends before the surgery and then found that I could drink for hours just fine then hit a wall and was smashed. I lost friends, boyfriends and family. I didn't know... READ MORE

It was a long and hard process deciding to have surgery. My family was against it and I was basically on my own. Now, 130 pounds lighter I have been able to do things I never thought possible.I enjoy exercise and never thought that was ever possible. There are days when I think why did I have... READ MORE
