orlando78 Posted May 23, 2005 Report Share Posted May 23, 2005 I've been overweight all my life, only to have lost & gained pounds when I literally starve myself.. and then when I get back to eating 'normal' foods, I gain all of it back and then some.. I've also tried numerous over-the-counter pills and lo-carb diet plans, etc which were no help (esp. being a vegetarian).. I have been researching the different surgeries out there and came across this site and have been reading & re-reading the information on the website and the posts. I was excited and went to discuss possibilities of doing the surgery here in the US first and he outright said he doesn't recommend the surgery because he feels I just have not been trying hard enough to exercise and diet on my own.. but BELIEVE me, I have been trying for most of my life. I am 26 yrs old now, and have not been able to do any of the 'fun' things in life, wear the great clothes, etc.. and I really don't want to have to go through another failed starvation & exercise attempt..! Please advise on whether this is the best option for someone in my situation, and also any kind of encouragement on the surgery itself, the benefits of having it done in Mexico by the expert Dr.s, the cost, and how easy it is to get an appointment (i.e.. what are the steps to take once I have made a decision)..? Thanks so much for your input.. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
