Memorial

This is a memorial dedicated to site members who have passed away. This is an open memorial for our members and does not consist of wls patients only.

We would like to note that averaging high and low risk patients together, the death rate from bariatric surgery is about 0.2%. For morbidily obese patients who do not have surgery, life expectancy can be 15 or more years below average.

If you know of any members on this site who have passed away, please email Member Services and ask that the member's name be added to the list below. This may take some time; please be patient.

To the friends and families of these people, we send our deepest regards and sympathies.
