Is getting bariatric surgery an option for me?
I am 40 years old 5'2 and weigh 189 lbs. I have no co-morbidities but my mother, her siblings, and parents is/were a diabetic and has heart disease (mother and grandfather). They are also all overweight just like me. I have been trying to lose weight since 2008 with no luck. I am exhausted from carrying the weight, leg swelling, and knee issues. I would like to have bariatric surgery but not sure I qualify. Please advise.
