You're the only one who can make that decision!
Bariatric surgery is BIG business. A lot of doctors are getting very rich from performing lap band, gastric bypass, VSG, and the duodenal switch.
It makes my blood boil when I see doctors advertising surgery as a permanent "solution" to overweight/obesity. That's the problem with advertising! You only hear one side of the story.
Those profiting from your surgery are likely going to give you a great and convincing sales pitch.
Talk to and read about others who have had surgical weight loss procedures. Those who've actually gone through the experience can provide valuable information and insight.
That's why I'm creating this section of the site.
After corresponding with blogger Jen Olski, I knew what I needed to do. I needed to create a forum on this site where people could share their weight loss surgery stories with those considering surgery.
Won't that be more helpful than hearing from some cheeseburger-deprived doctor about how happy you're going to be when you look like him/her? You can decide for yourself whether the costs (and risks) outweigh the benefits.
My hope is that these unbiased accounts will give you better insight as to what life might be like after bariatric surgery. Use the informtion to help you make the best decision for YOU.
