No matter what I do I can't seem to lose any real weight. Gastric Bypass Surgery?

I am 27 years old, 5 feet 3 inches tall and I had a baby in April. I have always struggled with my weight. I weigh around 230 lbs. Am I a candidate for weight loss surgery?

Am I a candidate?

At 63 in tall and 230 lbs, your BMI is 40.7.  Yes, you are a candidate for weight loss surgery.  Contact your local bariatric surgery center of excellence for the next step. Good luck!
