How many will have the previous starting weight as the goal (or even below the goal) this time around?

Interesting. The people that I know that did some sort of surgery are all very happy (I think?)

After how much time?

Didn't read the article, but those who know me can attest that I have an abundance of anecdotal evidence on this subject, and I would strongly advise against surgery for anyone not doing it for very specific and immidiately necessary medical reasons. I know people who will tell you they are happy they did it and haven't been able to comfortably enjoy a meal in 15 years.

Then, not being able to eat a healthy meal without intense discomfort is most certainly a bug.

I have way too much to say about this topic to have gotten started on Friday.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
