So I am very new to this. I will have my first consultation on 3/2/16. I am 230lbs 5'4 and my BMI s 39.6. I have highl blood pressure, sleep apnea and high cholesterol. I have been trying to lose weight for over 10 years. I wil lose it but will gain and then some. I hope I will be a good candidate. I been searching and think I am going to go with the sleeve. My insurance requires a 6 month wait and nutrient counseling for 6 months. My insurance is Medcost. I am getting a little excited just knowing I have my first consultation coming up. Please wish me good luck!
