How Much over Weight Do I Have to Be for Gastic Bypass Surgery?

Answer

From what I've been told the doctor would like for the patient to be a couple of pounds over weight before they get bypass surgery. If a patient is a couple of pounds over weight then the doctor would prefer for you to lose the weight naturally. Most of the time the doctor wouldn't even recommend diet pills because it is safer to lose the weight through diet and exercise.
