I am 47. There are bunches of us. I had no difficulty with the surgery. Doctors are strange. Mine told me that he expected me to do well because I am "young and free of cardiac complications". So remember, by medical definition, you are young. :)

Im over 50 and I had no complications at all.. I was healthy going into the surgery not on any medications what so ever. Im post op since dec 20th.. im down 56lbs.. so yes I have had a great success rate.. my doc is very proud of me.. I stick to the game plan and follow all the rules and diet phases.. and im more than happy with the outcome.. only one regret.... I didnt do it sooner. best of luck..

I just turned 49, had my surgery last September 10th, reached my goal weight yesterday and have lost 78.2 pounds. I had no issues with surgery. Don't worry if you are healthy and committed you will do great!

I'm 53 and thus far have not had any difficulties or complications. Prior to the surgery I drilled and drilled my surgeon about pain (I'm a punk when it comes to pain) I didn't have any pain at all, no gas or any discomfort. My surgery was on 10/08/12, so far I have lost 74lbs. I have quite a bit more to go. :)

I'm 49 and just had surgery a couple of days ago and everything is going fine. I hope to be close to goal weight by the time I turn 50 in July.

I'm 48 years old and I haven't had any problems other than the regular post surgical issues. But pre op I was on two Bp meds now I'm on none. I feel great and now that I've dropped 12 dress sizes look better lol. Good luck you will be fine

I turned 49 on Sept 17 and my sleeve procedure was conducted on Sept. 18. I started out at 293 in April, 2012 when I started my surgeon's program. By the date of my sleeve, Sept. 18, I had lost down to 268. This morning when I weighed, Feb. 25, 2013, I am now at 208. Total lost is 85 lbs. Feeling great now and looking forward to future weight loss. My procedure went well and I have not had any problems (sickness) since the procedure. The day of surgery and the next couple of days were difficult. Nothing anyone can't handle with the future reward you'll have. I thank my surgeon everyday for giving me my life back! Feel great, energy has returned. Best of luck to you. You'll do and feel GREAT afterward.

I'm 50 and had my surgery 3 weeks ago today. Absolutely no complications whatsoever. My primary care doctor even took me off Lipitor that I have been on for 12 years. That was exciting!! I'm 28 lbs down. I started at 258 and i weighed in at 230 this am. very happy so far!!

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
