How can I get free weight loss surgery?

Question by Tiare J: How can I get free weight loss surgery?
I want to get the Gastric Bypass surgey, but there is no way I can afford it and I don’t have insurance at this moment, but I will soon. I am so desperate I will do something on T.V. And YES I’ve tried dieting and exercising and that hasn’t helpd me lose the weight. I’m open to any suggestions. Thank you very much. 🙂

    Hate to say this, but you will be placed on a diet before they will consider the surgery. Any reputable surgeon will have you eat the Post-Gastric Bypass diet before doing the surgery so that you will see what you are in for. It is a HUGE commitment, and you are best going into it with eyes wide open.

    Otherwise, check with your local medical college – sometimes they have trials, but often you can only get into one with a referral from your doctor.

    Call the offices that perform such proceedures and ask what they have in the way of charitable offerings. Can you work it off in the office in advance? Can you put it on payment plan?

    Talk to lots of clinics.

    I had a girl friend who wanted a different optional proceedure. She called around until she found a very high profile surgeon who had an understudy, the understudy did the proceedure for less than 1/2 price. The big wig Dr. was attending.
    She was happy in the long run.

    Best of luck,

    The reason diet and exercise haven’t helped you is because you don’t stay with them. Sounds like the only thing you’ve stuck with is eating and sitting around. Diet and exercise DO work, so you can’t say they don’t, but reading your question, it looks like you’re all about the easiest route in life. I suggest you read about this procedure before you actually go through with it. There are alot of negative side effects. Too many to list, and the procedure is not that expensive, with some places even providing financing. I’d call around before you tried to sponge off society for choosing to eat to much. Hope this helps.

    Seriously, I’d recommend you first isolate the reason why you’re unable to lose weight via diet and exercise. Find out if there’s some aggravating cause, like thyroid activity, hormonal imbalances, etc, etc. Go see your doctor and get some blood work done. If you can at least isolate the cause, then you can attack it from that angle. If you are still interested in the gastric procedure and you have no insurance or money then you’re really up against a brick wall. Another thing you need to consider is that most reputable doctors will not perform a gastric surgery unless you are a minimum of 100 pounds overweight for your height and age. Are you at that level?.
