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.

Was your high BP only from your weight?
