    Where do I begin? How to get over my fears?

    I would like to consider surgery for weight loss. I need to lose at least 100 lbs. I am very scared of this surgery. I have had my tonsils removed, had my gall bladder removed, and have given birth twice. Those things never scared me. However, going in for weight loss surgery really scares me. I have heard of two people who passed away from complications from the surgery. I'd rather be fat for my entire life than leave this Earth and my children/husband.

    Penn Medicine is in my area (Philadelphia) and they are well known for so many things that I would probably inquire through them, first. Are there other ways for me to do research on doctors or facilities who offer the surgery?

    Thanks for reading.
