Hi, I wanted to ask a question, as I have heard to many conflicting answers on this matter. Can you have a gastric bypass, or lap band surgery if your not overweight? Would it be possible to ask your PS to have this done if this was something you were interested in, I was told by friends that I could only qualify for it if I was overweight, but I told them I would pay for the surgery so why does it matter. Can anyone that knows about this let me know?

OH MY!!! If you don't have to have it done, then why would you want to put yourself through such a thing? This is suppose to be the last resort, for those who have tried everything; and are extremely in need.

You would have to qualify, but if you don't have to have it done....DON'T DO IT. I don't know you, but this sounds like a crazy thing to do if you aren't overweight!
