I am a candidate for GSB. My BMI is 36.4 and I am age 67 and diabetes is getting worse. They indicated weight loss in MY CASE will not probably work although I am about 75# overweight. They feel the STATS say in 80% of cases with GSBypass that diabetes abates or goes away in the first few months. I am considering GSB for that reason. I want the next 15-20 years of quality life compared to all the BAD things they say are coming. I am in the final phases of having surgery scheduled and wonder if anyone can comment on their success and how hard it was to adapt to lifestyle after....food, etc. Help please???
