30 years old, 5'2" and 192-195lbs. Can I quailify for the gastric sleeve procedure?

Hi! I just turned 30. I am 5'2" and my weight ranges from 192-195. I don't not have any co-issues such as diabetes or high blood pressure. I have PCOS and I have always felt my hormones were out of whack. I lost weight about 4 years ago through medicine my doctor prescribed and got down to 143lbs (started at 183lbs) but over the 4 years I have gained all and more back. We tried to use the medicine again about 6 months ago but they did not work this time around.

PCOS and gastric sleeve surgery

Hi. You indeed are a great candidate with your current age, BMI (body mass Index) and current medical conditions. Your PCOS will get so much better once you seriously lose a considerable amount of weight and of course you'll feel so much better. Quality of life gets so much better as well as your underlying conditions. I hope this answers your questions. 
warm regards, Dr. Alvarez
