Default gastric bypass before surgery

I understand all the replies on the post. The only thing I will tell you is that you will have to make that decision for yourself. There are always horror stories as well as success stories for everything.. I am 13 years post op, from my gastric bypass as of May of this year. When I made the decision to have the surgery, I did not consult anyone but the doctor. Your friends and family will always tell you what they feel, but the ultimate decision lies with you. I went on my first cruise this year and enjoyed myself very much. Everyone is different and will have different experiences. You have to do what you feel is right for you, not for your friends, not for your doctors, not even for your family...but again for you. Whatever your decision...enjoy your cruise...
