I was reading somewhere that the ASMBS stated that only 10% of bypass patients reach a healthy BMI, and they only go down one category so if someone was Very Obese, they would go down to Obese, just by looking at this forum, it seems more than 10% of bypass patients seem to get to a healthy BMI.

I think we can safely say that on this forum we have pretty good success rates concerning BMI. I truly believe it is because we have so much support. Not just from Streamline Surgical (not all of us are Streamline patients) but form each other. My after care from Streamline has been second to none – I could not have done so well without them, especially in the early days. However, the support from other wls patients, no matter who they had their surgery with, is paramount in my opinion to ongoing success.

Oh and my BMI is 26 too – still have excess skin. However, Shaw Somers said: ‘What can you do with a BMI of 25 that you can’t do with one of 26?’ I always quote it and it’s always true!
