Has Anyone Had Weightloss Surgery And Did It Help With Symptoms

Has Anyone Had Weightloss Surgery And Did It Help With Symptoms

I'm having weightloss surgery next month, my surgeon said it should give me some relief from my symptoms. Has anyone experienced this?

I had the lap band and then had to have it removed (it was twisted) they did a gastric sleeve.. I cannot really say that the weight loss changed my symptoms. It seems the only thing that helps me is to only do enough things during the day to not overdo.

Hi, it's not that weight causes fibro it just makes symptoms much worse because of the strain extra weight puts on the body.( allegedly) ....I'm not sure....but I know I'll be better off 50 lbs lighter anyways...
