    If you just want to shrink your stomach, cosmetic surgery might be better. In any case you have to look at your issues with food. People do gain their weight back even with this surgery.

    Yes.

    This is not a cosmetic surgery.
    This is a major surgery for people with serious and hazardous health issues.
    And we have to work really hard to get and keep all the pounds off.
    English is not my first language, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    A BMI of 37 is in the obese category. I think you would be thrilled with the sleeve surgery, but do your research and make your own decision. Good luck!

    My bmi was 36.7. I dropped down to 102 lbs at my lowest, and have come up to 116 over the last year and a half. I wear a zero now where they were too big last year. I did not try to get this low and I eat pure junk, so if you don't want to lose a serious amount of weight, don't go through such a drastic process. It can be brutal, but it does the job.

    Nearly 4 years out, and just got sick for the billionth time because I tried to eat more than my tummy allows. I never have learned yet to stop that.
    No pre-op diet

    You are definitely eligible weight wise. But it is not a magic bullet. You have to create good habits and make good choices or you can become ill. If you are serious, read up. Ultimately only you can make the decision that is right for you. I am glad I was sleeved and love my new life.
