Thinking of having the gastro by pass. I'm going to talk to my Dr. when I see him in 3 weeks. I know I still have to eat right and exercise. Has anybody had the surgery before.

I don't know much about it, except you have to be in good health over all, to be a good can dent for that surgery. I have a brother with high internal blood sugar. He is 6ft around 350 pds. They will not let him, he is high risk, they would not want him to die during or recovering from surgery. I would research that here on web md. Steph
