I am 50 and weighs 320. I weighed a 180 five years back. I started gaining weight alarmingly after I was diagnosed with a thyroid problem. I am on medication for thyroid but my weight refuses to go down despite my cutting down on food intake and exercising everyday. I know for a fact that the risk of gastric bypass goes up at age 55. I have read articles which clearly show the risk, but I know that I would be in more risk healthwise if my weight continues to go up. Your advices and opinion will be greatly appreciated.
