A friend's sister had gastric by-pass surgery about 6 years ago; she died within days from an infection. She was only 35 years old.

Above all else, make sure you thoroughly research your doctor's background and keep in mind this is major surgery and there are always risks.

Try seeing a dietician and working with your regular doctor to try a diet and modified exercise regime, even if it's just walking every day.
