Talk to PCP: Talk to your PCP about your concerns. Do not request anything specific, don't say " I want gastric bypass" but discuss your concerns. You probably qualify for a procedure. Typically either BMI equal or greater than 40 alone, or BMI > 35 plus other medical risk factors like BM, hypertension, elevated cholesterol qualify pt for a procedure. Plus you are 18 y/o and are an adult. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If no other symptoms (pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, weight loss) then reassuring. Associated with certain foods/beverages (food dyes?). Might want to keep symptom and food diary to see if link. Would also discuss with your surgeon. Hope this helps. Good luck. Dr R ...Read more
