you look great! congrats! one of my friend had gastic bypass too and she is looking wonderful! can you tell me little bit about it? what's the risks and so on? because my brother is overweight and he is scared to have it, i really would love him to consider it for his health btw congrats on baby boy! :-)
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.
You look stunning! I can't actually see the before pic as it's so small, but I do get the picture!!
No sagging skin at all? I am on my weight loss journey and am really worried about that, especially my boobs as they are saggy enough as it is!!
I have very high BP also (my highest was 186/136 - and that was medicated!!) and I am now losing weight, on a different medication and hoping it goes away soon!! They found it when I was pregnant with my son and I had a rough pregnancy and have been medicated since.
