I agree totally with your advice. Be careful…like others have said. It won't prevent you from being sick. I, too, have looked into this for myself. I was told (just received a letter yesterday) that I do not qualify…that your BMI must be >40.8 before it will even be considered. This is directly from the company. They did, however, supply me with other possibilities and support systems to check out. Juts be very careful. The more problems you experience before surgery, the more problems you may experience after surgery. Check with other docs (2nd opinions), our own staff of docs and dieticians/nutritionists before actually doing it ! Angie, RN
