@cmac1mcB I don't think the fact you gained weight due to a side effect from your asthma meds changes the fact that you had WLS in order to lose weight. Many people here had WLS in order to treat diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea etc.. Additionally early on many of us struggle with having to eat when we are not hungry, in order to get adequate Protein. So even though you may see yourself as different than other WLS patients, I think you will find your journey pretty similar.

As mentioned in another comment. It was to help treat my low blood pressure and to fix my reoccurring esophageal and stomach bleeds and required upper endoscopies and surgeries. I understand where everyone is coming from. Losing the weight is helping, though it’s my ability to use my lungs that’s the major improvement, and regulating my blood pressure so I’m not always dizzy and nauseous. Any WLS has a similar journey because the surgery itself was for weight loss. All I’m trying to say is I didn’t do it FOR weight loss, I did it for the other remedies as a result of the surgery. I’m not trying to be different or see myself as different at all, I’m just asking for personal experiences on other health conditions that improved because of the surgery..
