Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric Bypass Surgery

My obgyn has recommended for me to get a gastic bypass surgery and im a little worried.... I have been trying to have kids for past 6 years and ive either miscarried or just wasnt succesfull. Dr said my chances will change but ive been told that before too.... Has anybody else has a gastric bypass done?

Get ALL the information before you do it. You can't undo surgery. A lot of places now a days, hold "seminars" about weight loss surgery.

I have been in the process since the beginning of the year to try to get the gastric sleeve because my weight is absolutely out of control. I am engaged also and don't want to be at this weight when I get married and I want to have kids some day. I had the lap band before but had to have it taken out due to complications. A lot of the people that I have seen that have gotten the gastric bypass or sleeve have been very successful. I just want to be healthy again so I definitely understand your struggle. I can't wait to live a normal life again and not always be fatigued and held back by my excessive weight 😥.
