My cousins husband passed away 5 years after her surgery. She was 45. One day she had sudden severe stomach pain, went to ER, rushed into surgery and died on the table. They said it was complications from the weight loss surgery.

I'm sorry to hear that. There are still things they don't know I guess. Because it seems common now I guess people don't think about the bad side effects unless they know someone personally who had troubles.
