I am strongly considering the gastric sleeve. Yes I know it's drastic but I am becoming desperate. The fear of dying has become overwhelming recently and I am really worried. I have been dieting my whole life and have exercised and dieted since January and have lost 7 lbs. it is so discouraging. My health hasodefinitely taken a beating. I am suffering from Hypertension, Sleep Apnea and have developed heart palpitations. I am looking for sponsors f or surgery. I have started a page for it and I promise that that is what it will be used for.
