Hi Haylen
I don;t need a study to keep me away from weight loss surgery . I think it is an awful thing to alter your bodys digestive system in order to help you control your eating habits . because it has been shown the people who get this surgery fail to control eating and they regain quickly .
why not just learn to control eating instead of surgery ,,
just my view on this
Hugs Judy:)
