I am seriously considering WLS. I have been steadily gaining weight each year that I have tried to lose weight. I can remember when I weighed 225lbs. for a long time. It has been 10 years since I was that weight. I currently weigh 281 lbs. after numerous attempts to lose weight.
Weight loss surgery is taking longer than I thought to even get in to have the surgery. Many people would say, "you could just lose the weight, rather than waiting to get surgery". If it was as easy as saying it, then I would have lost the weight a long time ago.
Anyway, I am going to request the "sleeve gastrectomy" surgery. After reviewing all of the options it seems to have the least amount of side effects.
