My highest weight was 365lbs. I am now at 210lbs. I did it because I was down a path where I was going to die at a early age. I was lucky and had a perfect surgery, no complications...My next step is removing my excess skin.

I'm thinking about getting gastric bypass would you be willing to answer some of my questions?

Hi Jennifer, welcome!

We do have a Weight Loss Surgery page, which has some guides and other useful tools, if you'd like to take a look. You might find the information helpful!

Have you spoken to any doctors yet about the surgery?
