    I don't exactly meet your specs but I am replying anyway! I hope you don't mind. I am 5'7. SW 350 CW 200. Revised to sleeve December 2013. Still losing but very slowly now. I lost 100 pounds in 6 months.

    Wait, you can get short, sleeved? (Pun intended) I can deal with hair loss, having to buy new clothes, small meals, liquid diets, but I refuse to get shorter.

    For me it was yesterday my husband took me out shopping for my birthday and I tried on a size 8 pants and it fit me. I did the happy dance can't remember when I was able to do fit in a size 8. Also I just realized that I am a short in pants I was,never able to fit in short size pants I always got regular or long. This was the best bday gift I gave my self doing the sleeve. :-)

    beenee reacted to quakergirl in another reason I think the RNY is too drastic   
    I recently heard about Zonegran, a new drug that may help with weight loss. Here's an article about it and another drug called Axokine that makes it sound promising:
    Now obviously, these weight loss drugs are still too new to be sure if they will be useful to MO patients. I'm surely glad I got the band! But such developments give me hope that in 5 or 10 years there may be some amazing advances in curing obesity without surgery. Perhaps something that will make it easier than it is with the band. If that is the case, I will be grateful that I chose the band instead of the RNY or DS. If some easier method of weight control comes along in a few years, I have the option to get unbanded and will be essentially back to normal. Reversing an RNY or DS is far, far more complicated and risky.
    So, it really makes me feel bad for all the young people out there who are going for the RNY. That is such a drastic, permanent choice to be making. The band makes sense as a first choice. The RNY and DS are only justified as last resorts, in my opinion.

    beenee reacted to choosehope in Where are all the 50 something bypass patients?   
    Cheri-J. I am also 56. I'm dreaming of a world of no arthritis! While I know that won't happen, I know my
    flexibility and movement will increase and my pain level decrease.
    So, for all of you, what do you think the biggest advantage of being 50 something when you have bypass is? Biggest disadvantage? Biggest struggle?
    From my pre-op perspective, I think the biggest advantages are that I'm mature enough (theoretically) to know what I'm committing to and that while I do want to look and feel better in my body, my driving motivation is health and living the second half of my life well.
    Disadvantage - I spent so many years in physical and emotional pain and bondage- always fighting with my weight and losing. There are ways in which I've done irreparable harm to my body.
    Biggest struggle - this will probably change after surgery but right now it's probably that investigate and analyze and over-investigate and over-analyze.
    Best wishes to all you 50 and 60's wherever you are in your journey. Let's stay in touch. Sometimes I feel like the majority of people here are getting sleeves (which makes me over-analyze! Lol) or are half my age! Love learning from them but also treasure insight and support of others who are in my situation.

    For the first time in 48 years, my New Year’s resolution is not “lose weight”. Forty-eight years!!! I love my sleeve! For those of you on the front end of this process, keep the faith, follow all the rules, and always try to make good choices. You can get there too! Happy and Healthy New Year!!!!!
