(Virginia Beach, Virginia)
I am almost sixteen years old. I am 100 pounds overweight.
I have tried, what feels like, millions of diets. I have been looking into this option for a little while now. I have recently talked to my mom about this idea, and she is totally supportive. She is a RN at a local hospital.
She said she would check into this especially to see if our insurance will cover this. What do you think. Is this a bad idea? How effective will this be? How likely is is that insurance will cover this?
Weight loss surgery should be considered as a last resort only.
It's only a tool....it's no guarantee. Success is largely dependent on YOU and your dedication to following a healthy post surgery diet and regular exercise routine.
I think you'll likely have difficulty finding a surgeon who will operate on you before you're 18.
