The Left: On 8 prescription medications for severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea, severe Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, High Blood Pressure, and the aches and pains of carrying around 150+ extra pounds. Visiting Dr's several times a month, $$$ thousands of dollars a year in co-pays.
The Right: Off all medications, all co-morbidities resolved, haven't been to the Dr. for anything more than routine stuff in 6 1/2 years. Take note employers that don't want to cover weight loss surgery, seems like a no-brainer to me.
