Got a call from a weight loss surgeon

I decided to call for more information about weight loss surgery after finding a nearby physician's website. I attended an internet-based seminar and then they called me a few days later to get insurance information. Now I'm waiting to hear if I could potentially be approved for weight loss surgery. I still haven't made up my mind as to if I'll do it or not, but I have a lot of weight to lose and it doesn't seem to be coming off through diet and exercise alone.

How long have you been trying for and what types of things did you try? A friend of mine is in a similar situation but his work insurance will not cover the surgery as it is a considering an elective (he is not overweight enough for them to care).

I've had a good friend go through weight loss surgery, it's a difficult decision to make for yourself. Good luck whatever you decide x

I don't like the idea of weight loss surgery, but in the end, it all depends on you and what you want, not what other people think is best. Good luck if you go through with it.

It is a difficult decision but I hope that you get the best outcome from whatever you decide to do. Good luck!
