Thank you for taking the time to answer me back !!! I will look up QueenB ... My daughter did have gastric bypass in Nov 2005 -- she is only 19 but weighed 275 lbs and 5'5"- so far she has lost 65 lbs -- a few little aches and pains --- throws up now and then, and says her side hurts -- a little low on Vitamin B1 also -- other than that -- seems to be going good --- I just wonder at my lower BMI if people regret having the Surgery -- cause I know it is not easy-- just watching my daughter go through it -- do you ladies think you would have the surgery at my weight ????? or try and do ONE more diet on my own .....
I can speak from my experience. I have been overweight since late childhood and bounced up and down some, often going in and out of the "qualifying" number. I finally looked into the surgery because of health problems, and by then my BMI was maybe 42 (and I am also your age). I have never regretted the surgery for even a single minute! If I could go back in time I would have done it even earlier. I was so tired of being stuck in the low-mid plus size limbo. If you qualify and you feel you gave diet and exercise a fair shake over the years, and of course you educate yourself.........I say go for it.
