I know I will probably need some surgery to remove all this extra skin, has anyone gone thru this just wanna know how much it cost and time you need to heal. Thank you very much. My starting weight was 382 lbs not current weight is 221 lbs my goal is between 150 to 180 so still have some to go!

My friend lost 150 lb and her insurance paid for tummy surgery. She was fortunate insurance covered it, I don't think mine would.

That is awesome!! Do you know what insurance your friend has. I am hoping after I am done with my weight loss to get this skin taken away. I know I caused this myself but I want to look and feel better about myself.
