I'm only 18 and I weigh 347 pounds. I was considering GBP. I've struggled with my weight all my life (weighing a whopping 210 at 8 years old). I'm graduating high school soon and am ready to start a new chapter, so that means being healthy. Should I do it? Or do I have better options?

Anyone looking for a revision?

I am 16 years out from a roux en y bypass. I have gained a hundred pounds back, but still am 95 pounds less than my starting point. I have always had issues surgery wise, as I still have a hole where my incision was and it only recently stopped leaking. I also have a hernia on my incision line. I'm a mess.
