there are horror stories with anything (even getting a pedicure has risks)
as others before me have said, its about health…or it should be…when we are healthier, we feel better and it shows on the OUTSIDE as well as the inside..there are people who are for and people who are against any WLS. Listen to your doctor..if you want to get well, then do it…i had surgery 2 1/2 years ago. i had troubling wiping my backside that had its own zip code……those neg nellies were not going to wipe it for me…..it was and it remains UP TO ME to help my chosen WLS to make me healthy….
there is good and bad with any WLS…sometimes things happen and sometimes they dont
today, 13 yrs ago, people went to work in NY or got on planes. like any other day…remember that..
its YOUR life…live it and make the most of it..
all the best
