Long answer made short no. This has changed my life for the better as I used to have sleep apnea and a severe level, and it has now been completely resolved! There was other health issues that I had as well that are no longer present. I was 319 pounds at my worst and I am now down to 156 pounds. The only thing I regret is that I'm not able to enjoy a steak like I used to lol. Everyone was polite during the procedure stay. I was not mentally prepared at first, but it was definitely something that was worth getting done. I feel much better and happier. I would not put it off another day.
