Deciding on a surgery for weight loss can be a very difficult task. Doing research is important but more importantly, I think you must consult with your doctor on the same. There are a few things that differ from person to person due to which I believe only a doctor can provide good advice after a thorough check- up.
I had TC three years ago and my weight is up there. I am glad I found out what was making me feel so old, but this weight is going nowhere, and I fear I will be diabetic too. Knees are killing me. I know I need it, but am feeling guilty about the money which even with insurance is going to really be hard on us. Still I think knee replacement is like seventy grand each. Diabetes is expensive to treat. I used to love to move, and I would so like to be able to ride a bike again. I have to work and am worried about the time I will need off. Have no idea which surgery to have. The band just plain looks like it would bug me to death.
I am very pleased that my husband is supportive of the idea though. I am very surprised, and please at this. He is a good one this man of mine. Has been for like 35 years.
How do you choose which hospital is best? There is one near me I like but is a center of excellence a name they can just call themselves? or does some entity bless them with this title?
