Of course u can, and risks are something the clinic can help u with. I have heard alot of diabetes arn't diabetic after having this surgery, and it can cut the risk down to 0, so call one of the clinic and get a consult and get your questions answered... best wishes
I was Type II, but required long-term insulin shots in the AM, and short term fas-acting insulin shots with each meal....so in effect, they started classifying me as a Type II with type 1 insulin requirements.
Had the Gastric Bypass surgery13 months ago. I was 424 pounds at my worst point, 384 pounds on the day of my surgery, and am now 190 pounds when dripping wet!!!
Was originally on 16 precription drugs from 4 Specialists and my Primary Doctor. Currently on a Fentanyl Patch (50 microgram) , and very recent;y was added PreQuip to cancel out the new Restless Leg Syndrome that developed after the surgery,,,,
Note: I am no longer Diabetic...my sugar levels now average 86, and that is before eating, and 2 hours after eating. It is perfect for a non-diabetic person. In fact, the highest number I have recorded was 117 approximately 30 minutes after eating. I also have normal blood pressure (114/80), have normal cholesterol (138) now!
I won't lie to you...It is alot of work and the surgery IS NOT a quick-fix. You must committ to your new lifestyle, and new eating habits. And you must exercise.... That is crucial for you to lose the weight and maintain your sanity! I now walk 4-10 miles each time I go and I ride my bicycle a minimum of 12 miles and have gone up to 18 miles per ride...
