    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    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
