I'm looking to lose 150. I feel that I am young and committed and ready for surgery. I'm a little bit apprehensive because I'm scared of pain and doctors. Just looking for reccomedations about pre-operation so I am prepared and more relax. I also want to know what the pros and cons are so that I am well informed. I plan to do the operation sometime in the second week of april

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your journey with us!

This is a big decision (I had the Gastric Sleeve) but for me it has definitely been worth it. Make sure you research everything: your doctor, the surgery, expected weight loss, post-op expectations, etc. Ask your doctor lots of questions and make sure you're completely comfortable with your decision.

We have some WLS Guides, which may be useful and it would also be a good idea to read through the other WLS Reviews.

Good luck and please do keep us updated with your progress!
