I had gastric bypass surgery in July 04 and am down 130 pounds and have maintained the weightloss for 3 years now. That should be a great accomplishment. But for me, it has been hell. The excess skin that was left over on my body has cost me my marriage, extreme body image issues, and an inability to be intimate with anyone. Can't do plastic surgery because of financial reasons and it's not covered, this has led to severe depression, and multiple suicide attempts. I'm desperate for help!
