    Default “Low” BMI Qualifiers?

    I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I’d lose weight and then boomerang right back. I recently had a baby, and I just cannot get over the hump. I am terrified that I am not going to be able to play with my children because I get so tired and worn out doing every day things. My concern, however, is that I won’t qualify for gastric sleeve surgery. My BMI is 37. I had high blood pressure but only during pregnancy. I have evidence of apnea as recorded on a sleep study, but it wasn’t bad enough for intervention. No diabetes. I do have joint pain, but no RA or anything like that. It’s miserable because I’m miserable but not enough for the doctor’s standards.

    Has anyone been in the same boat but gotten approved for sleeve surgery?

    Your option may be to self-pay. There are affordable places in the US. Do some research, It's so worth it even if you have to pay yourself.
