I've struggled with my weight since I developed PCOS in college. 20+ years, 100+ pounds and a lot of research later, I'm finally ready for a gastric bypass. I'm excited. I'm hoping for weight loss, yes, but also for improved health. I want to lessen the strain on my arthritic knees, reduce my risk for diabetes, improve my asthma and sleep apnea, and have a lot more energy.
