Question by amberranae6292: Should I get gastric bypass surgery?
I am seventeen years old. I know it’s really young to be considering such a dramatic option. I know that there are risks involved, and I know that it IS a lifechanging procedure.
That being said, I am seventeen years old, five foot two, and two hundred fifty pounds. I eat a normal amount, and exercising is really hard to do because I am obese. It is tiring for me to walk from my house to the mailbox, short distances that should not bother me.
So my question is, should I get gastric bypass surgery? I used to say that I would never do it unless it was for medical reasons, but it’s getting to the point where it is affecting my life.
I don’t care about going on dates or wearing American Eagle clothes. That is not my reason for it. I am at extreme high risk for diabetes (it is actually a shock that I don’t already have it), as well as many other problems.
Again, I know there are severe risks and complications involved… and, of course, I am not going to base my decision off of the answers I receive from this…. but I am just looking for a bit of advice. Should I look into the procedure?
Thanks for your input!
I didn’t mean to set this to infectious diseases… it was supposed to be in “other”. Sorry!
