Thank you; I am new to this journey. Trying to reach out for insight/experiences from those in the "mature" sphere. So far, it appears age doesn't matter! 😀

And if you want someone to talk to , someone that knows maturity at sometimes sucks. Here I be, 72 and 3/4ths years old, just had my RNY September 5th, and I am happily healing. And age is no barrier, I am healing just as good as people half my age. I had a wonderful surgeon, creme de la creme.His name is Bradley J Needleman MD, I would recommend him to one and all. He is at OSU in Columbus Ohio.
Let me share something, my son accomplied me to this appointment, we usually,go to each others. After much discussion of things he came over to my son, now he is supportive of me and my surgery plan . But inside I bet there was a lttle voice saying "Are you sure this is good for Mom?" At any rate he came over shook my son's hand and said "I prom u we I will take very good care of your Mom" and I just melted inside. How often do you find a doctor that carting? Most of the ones I have met are
Mr To goto
Don't speak to me I am incredibly busy.
And my,unfavorite one that sad to say my PCP used. Stare at your laptop screen instead of speaking more the minimal words necessary. I would wonder if I told him I had a prickly purple rash where the sun don't shine. Would he look up and admit,I'm seven there is

I was 56 when I had my surgery. I'm 2 years out. From my highest (which was not officially recorded) I was probably over 300 pounds in August 2015. I flop between 152-160 right now and am working on getting my body fat down under 28 percent. I've gone from barely fitting into 24s to buying a pair of size 6 Levis this past weekend. I'm a nationally ranked fencer in my age group now and just this weekend won Bronze (all women over 50) and Silver (women 50-59) medals in fencing at the NJ Senior Olympics this weekend. I can dead lift 200 pounds and squat 215.

The only regret I have is not having done this 20 years ago.
