I am a 34yr. old female. I have been over weight all my life. My highest weight has been 299lbs. I started taking phentermine 30mg. about a year ago. I have only lost about 30-40 lbs. I have been considering the gastric by pass for awhile now. My husband says I should have it done. He is very supportive. Which he had it about 6 1/2 yrs. ago. It saved hes life. He was alomost 600lbs. so I'm not a stranger to the surgery. But its a real drastic step.I know that its not a quick fix its a life change. I have weighed the pros and cons of it and I am leaning towards getting it. Because nothing else really seems to help. I just lost my mom in Dec. from complications of having diabietes. I dont want to go down the same road she did. I know I stand a greater chance of getting them being over weight. I also have a compressed fracture in my back and pinched nerves and bad knees. I know that if I could get the weight off it would be better on me. I have also researched the Lap-Band surgery but didnt like the fact that if you drank anything with your meal it would just wash the food on through the hole to the larger pouch in your stomache so you wouldnt feel full. So I just wanted some advice
