I have recently relocated to Texas from Washington State and my allergies are extreme here. I have had bronchitis during the holiday season for three straight years and never want to have the walking pneumonia from last season again. SW 355 the allergist said that my specific symptoms will be significantly improved through bariatric surgery and work reducing inflammation. It is a blessing to have surgery to improve the quality and length of life. Hope is a good thing to feel.
