Hi all. I need help! I am 18 years old, nearly 19 and I weigh 320lbs. I have a BMI of 51.6 and my health is already suffering. Could anyone please reply to me with the steps I need in order to start the process of having surgery? May seem a bit drastic at my age but I have been trying to lose weight since I was 8. Its been a lifelong struggle, that may sound ridiculous coming from someone so young, but its true. Also could anyone tell me, is a referral letter from a GP needed if the surgery was to take place somewhere abroad? Like is Brussels as was mentioned?
Any info is greatly appreciated!
