I had a gastric by-pass to lose weight and get rid of the diabetes, when I got pregnant with my son. He is now 17 years and I still haven't lost the pouch from my C-section. I get a rash on one side of the scar all the time. I have been wanted to lose the weight for so long. I'm short and it feels like I am carrying around a spare tire.

He is a very good doctor. I'm happy with my results so far. Not as much pain as I thought.
