There are some risks with the surgery. The major one is death. It can happen. This was a major decision that I made in life. I had very bad high blood pressure and the doc told me that if I was to stay at the weight that I was at, I would probably die of a stroke. I decided to go for it. I lost the weight and I do not have high blood pressure anymore. After surgery, I was lucky and did not have any sagging skin. I did end up with a incisional hernia that was repaired a year following my gastric bypass and I had my gallbladder removed last year. Other then that I am doing great.
