I've been over weight for about 13 years and I have two beautiful daughters and a wonderful husband that I would love to be active with. I have considered having weight loss surgery for 2 years now. I'm so ready to be lighter and healthier. I'm 5'7' and 300lb so it is definitively taking a toll on my body. As much as I wish I could do it all on my own I'm 90% sure it wont stay off or even work. I know this is the perfect tool and life style change I need.


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

Congratulations on making the decision to have WLS. It's a huge decision and commitment to make, but your kids and husband seem like great reasons to make this work for you!

Are you having to do any kind of pre-op work, like lose some intial weight, speak with a dietician, etc?

I chose Stanford Medical Center because it is a Center of Excellence Hospital and we only two in the Northern Californian area.
