Weight Loss Surgery For Teens?

How young is too young to have a gastric bypass?

I’ll be honest: This story has me a little torn. On the one hand, I would have loved to have had this surgery at 17 and really enjoyed high school, even my 20′s, without the taint of fatness in my life.

But I was a completely different person at 17 than I am today. How on earth does a child that age prepare for the emotional ramifications of this surgery? How can you make such a life-altering, irreversible decision so young?

What do you think?
