Exclamation Is Gastric Bypass the answer for a Mom who is quite obese?

At 54 years old, my mother is very obese. We love her very much and support her through her decisions in life; however, she needs to desperately lose weight and become healthy. I would like to see her shed the weight so that she can enjoy her life and do things without having the strain of her excessive body weight. No one in my family is as overweight as she is, and I feel she is embarrassed by how she looks. It makes me cry some days. I really want to help her.

This is where I need YOUR HELP: Please, tell me all you know about the Gastric Bypass surgery -- complications, positives, negatives, expenses, dieting, food and anything else correlated to gastric bypass patients.

I really appreciate any feedback and thank you in advance.


Looking forward to reading your posts.
