John. Aged 65. - I underwent laparoscopic gastric bypass in June 2008. Preoperatively my Body Mass Index was over 40kg/m2. I had been a diabetic for 5 years and was taking insulin and other antidiabetic medications. After my surgery I left hospital off all antidiabetic treatment and am no longer troubled by diabetes. I have also stopped taking blood pressure medications. My energy levels are hugely increased. My sleeping is much better. My back pain is much improved.It is over 21/2 years since my operation and I have lost and maintained 82lbs or 75% of my excess weight. My BMI is now 29kg/m2. Having the surgery is the best thing I ever did.
