So I want a gastric sleeve. I have been up and down (mostly up) since I was a teenager...Im now 40 with 2 small children.

Currently I weigh 390lb or 177kg....am I too large for this surgery ?

I would love to hear stories and see pictures of anyone similar ??

Thanks

you can see some before and afters of people in that weight range in the other forum. you arent too fat for surgery but that doesnt mean your surgeon wont make you lose a little weight first some do some dont. i think though that bypass might be what they would recommend because you take off more excess weight with it and you have more going in. however most surgeons seem fine to do whichever procedure the patient selects as long as there arent alot of conflicting comorbities (gerd is contradicted for sleeve as an example). welcome to the group

You are in the category of being evaluated and potentially become approved for surgery.
