In brief: Support groups

Find some bariatric support group meetings in your area.
They are generally held a couple times a month and include people who have had different types or weight loss surgery as well as people like yourself thinking of having surgery. You'll be able to meet others like you and those who have been through it all and have lots of experiance. That will be your best bet to get advice.
