I'm a 51 year old female, I have been overweight since childhood. I am a type 2 diabetic. I'm so sick of living my life overweight. I am 5'6 and 233lbs. I've been told over the years I should consider bariatric surgery but I guess my biggest fear is that it's really dangerous. Could it make my diabetes worse? How safe is the surgery? How sudden is the weight loss? Will it put my body in shock? Does the weight stay off for good? Any insight you could provide would be wonderful. I appreciate it.
