I am planning on having it done soon and would like feedback from anyone who has had this done. How long ago did you have it done? How much have you lost? Do you miss not eating? Did you have any complications? Are you glad you did it?

So I see this post is 4 years old...did you go through with it? I did it almost 6 years ago, best thing I ever did. I lost a little over 150lb, no complications.

Actually, I didn't do it. My cardiologist ruled against it. but, I am glad I didn't because I lost 70 pounds through therapy. I went to a counselor and learned how to deal with my stress so that I quit needing to eat for comfort.

I'm sorry you weren't cleared for it, but it's great that you lost that much weight on your own. That is one of the hardest things to do in life. I wish you continued success.
