Weight loss surgery was brought up by my doctor

Can anyone tell me the pros and the cons of any and all of the different surgeries (if you have had one).
I am at least 75 pounds overweight and I have PCOS and was just told that I have borderline diabetes.
I want to try for a while to lose weight the "old fashion" way, but if that does not work over the next few months, I very much want to consider weight loss surgery and I wanted to hear the good, the bad and the ugly about them.

And as an aside, how long do you have to wait to try to conceive after these surgeries.

Thanks so much!

weight loss surgery will help you to cure all the problems you facing and i can give you a rough idea that once the problem is cured you will have to also focus on weight lose and accordingly you can conceive.
weight loss surgery precautions before and after should be taken so avoid problems in later stage.

Re: Weight loss surgery was brought up by my doctor

I had a Roux-N-Y in 2010. I lost 130 lbs. What would you like to know about this particular surgery? I can tell you that my experience was a good one. This was definitely the right surgery for me. You MUST follow what they tell you in order for this to be a success. If your not going to give 100% to this than don't have the surgery! Example: Can you never eat fast food again? Are you willing to make that commitment? Can you stick to a vitamin/Supplement regimen? Most important for my particular surgery to get the adequate amount of protein everyday. It is a BIG shock to your system and its not the easy way out as some people think. It is an adjustment that takes time. After the surgery every food that you put in your mouth counts! You cant eat that much so whatever you do eat has to be nutritious.
