Chris, I reach out to you for so many reasons. Sounds like we have quite a bit in common...our Brothers. I know how that stings, boy do I know. And yet, here we are on the Obesity Help site. My brother John believed in this tool of weight loss-to better our lives and LIVE!! In choosing to do surgery he was CHOOSING TO LIVE.
