    I'm glad you talked to a doctor experienced enough to think ahead of the possible future problems you may have from the procedure. I get worried with so many doctors that seem to think losing weight at any cost is the golden ticket to good health.

    I was really impressed at him taking the time to have somebody call me and explain the specific risk factors that could endanger me, instead of just rejecting me outright and citing "pre-existing conditons".

    I had it done 3 yrs ago, and would do it again in a heartbeat. I didn't lose all my weight, but a huge chunk of it. My quality of life had drastically improved. I'm much more agile, and I can do a lot more physical things. I'm so glad I had it done.
