I was wondering if it would be a good idea to get the gastric bypass. You see Ive been looking into it I have been a diabetic since I was ten years old. I am 23 now, and Im overweight I have thyroid and high cholesterol and now I have high blood pressure. So I talked to my doctor and asked her about it and she said that she would refer me to a specialist. So I was wondering if there would be a risk or alot of risks for me with everything that I have. I have been looking into to it and I know that there are some risks. But I need a doctors opinion, so please give me some good advice.
