My primary care physician mentioned weight loss surgery casually during a visit - I thought I was too old - I then went to an information session and with the support of my husband signed up for surgery on the spot - I went to all required pre-surgery visits and information sessions - after surgery I developed an internal bleed in my abdomen ( not the surgery site) - apparently from the blood thinner I was taking after surgery - obviously I survived and I only wish I had done the surgery years ago - it would have spared me years of pain - I went from driving a scooter around Disney World to pushing my grandchildren's stroller - I haven't felt this good in 30 years - my goal was to lose 100 pounds and I have done that and more(2 yrs post op)  - anyone who is considering weight-loss surgery - do not waste your life - do it now
