Well it shouldn't be too difficult, there many more over 50s than there used to be. I guess we all realized it was time, we wanted surgery before everything fell apart. And to all the people who say "Why now?" or "Couldn't you have found a better age or time?"
Well now is a perfect time for me, I have the commitment, I have the time, I do know what I am doing. In my case, I realized I feared surgery a lot less than remaining obese, in pain and no hope for the future. Now things have fallen in place like a Big JigSaw puzzle, there are pieces still to put in, but I expect it to be pretty enough it should be framed. So watch the jet contrail, I'm flying high, straight and true and my destination is just ahead. My personal motto today;
Making the Rest of My Life the Best of My Life!

70 here. Wish I had done this when I was 60, I also had many nay sayers but I knew I needed to get healthier and breath easier. I had lost weight in the past, so I know I can do it, but now I have a tool to keep it off.

Ok, Im not over the 50 mark, but my husband is. Im just a bit younger than him at 48. Ive been thinking about getting help with my weight since about age 30 but had more important things to do. So only now was the right time. In addition to that, it seemed that doctors were reticent about operating on me since there were no other health issues. Now with my older years approaching, health care in Sweden has changed their minds and made it easier. So it's now covered for higher BMIs.

I am 70. Had the surgery 6 years ago. It was one of the best decisions I ever made.

I had my sleeve about 2 months shy of my 54th birthday. Wish I had done it sooner but have ZERO regrets. I am 22 months post sleeve and have held a steady weight loss of 115 lbs. I feel so much younger and more energized. Knee pain and foot pain are gone!!  I have already had some PS!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
