I had gastric bypass July was the best decision of my life. Dr.Baker was very very thorough and strict. He expects you to do as he says or he will not do it. It's not a easy way out it's a lifestyle change forever. After 19 years I am still maintaining my weightloss. The day if my surgery I weighed 420lbs and today I weigh 196!!!
