I am very nervous about the whole thing. I have met with a few people who have had the surgery and they have all said the same thing...it has changed their lives. My biggest fear is loose skin, I am not sure if I can live with that. Buy on the other hand I am not sure if I can live with the way I am now medically I can for see many complications as I age plus the fact that I have back, knees and feet pain. I guess I just need to make the decision and go for it!
