Hello, my 16 year old daughter has been diagnosed with PCOS. This was not a surprise but I am wondering if wls is possible for her. She has gained 100lbs in the last 4 years, she has lost 2/3 of her hair and has to shave her face. Her testosterone levels are double what they should be. She now weighs over260 and is 5'8. I also have PCOS and have struggled with my weight all my life but am 210 at 5'7. I have type 2 diabetes and I know she will as well if we cannot get her weight down. Does anyone do this surgery for teenagers? Is it wise to have this surgery at this age? Thanks
