I am 32 with a BMI of 36. I tried diet and exercise but it barely helped. I’ve been looking into weight loss surgery for a while, but have been a little overwhelmed by my options.
I know for sure I don’t want to cut anything out of me. The less my body is changed, the better. So, I know that cuts my options down a little bit.
I saw on the news a feeding-tube-like-thing, but honestly didn’t really think it was real. But, I’ve been doing a lot of research on this website and around the internet and it looks like the “Aspire Assist” is an actual option for weight loss.
But, I’m honestly still a little hesitant on this procedure because:
1. It says that there are not any diet restrictions that you medically have to follow. So, what exactly does that mean? Can I just eat whatever I want with the AspireAssist? That seems too good to be true.
2. I’ve seen elsewhere on the internet a lot of remarks about this being “medically assisted bulimia”. I have had people in my life suffer from eating disorders and I take them very seriously. I guess I can see why people call it that…can you explain how this is not “medically assisted bulimia”?
Sorry for the novel! Thank you so so so much in advance!
Thoughts and prayers for everyone else out there trying to get through this too!
