Some people don't know the facts about the surgery. In order to even be considered for the surgery, you have to be at least 100 pounds over weight. Maybe the guy is just a superficial prick who wants a super model instead of a normal weighted women. She may be slightly over weight but not enough for the procedure. People that just assume she is obese is just making a jack ass of themselves.

bariatric surgery is only for ppl with bmi over 40. if you are that fat then you should ask your doc. if not then the benefits do not justify the risks. but as any medicine you should not be buying it without your own docs advice. Don't ask a bariatric service if you need one. Thats like asking a barber if you need a haircut.

Yes, the husband thinks she's 'fat' when she may have a few extra curves. He may simply have a warped view of ideal body image, and is overreacting. I guess that makes you the dumbfuck.

I didn't go look it up to find out what it was, I looked for it on Wikipedia because it's a generally accepted source of knowledge and a viable form of proof which I hoped would put to rest the ignorant replies to my comment. Sadly, I was mistaken, as I seem to have incurred more. I already knew what the surgery was, but rather than say, "I know it's this because I know it's this" I posted what a 3 second Google search could have procured for the ignorant fucks replying to my god damn comment, you fucking twats.

Never fully trust wiki... it's often written by similar dumb fucks :)

If you take the two seconds to Google "Bariatric Surgery" and glance at the first three results, one is the Wikipedia article on bariatric, and the other two are other bariatric surgery resources. STFU with the "OMG IT'S WIKI IT'S FAKE HURR DURRR" bullshit.

In what way does having a superior vocabulary (and intellect, apparently) than you suggest that I am a wanna-be gangster in need of male enhancement services? Besides, I didn't know you knew me so well - oh right.

Zachary, your English is just fine. However, I disagree with your original comment. To all the commenters out there who may not trust Zachary's knowledge or wikipedia, OP was talking about bariatric surgery, which is obesity surgery. That is fact and indisputable. Bariatric surgery has numerous potential complications, depending on the type of surgery. I don't have tine to explain all of them, but suffice it to say some of them are devastating. The surgery, no matter what the type, is neither free nor a magic bullet. Major lifestyle changes are necessary for any type of bariatric surgery.

Nice one @69. We all know to little about OP to sit and judge what weight she is. The argument is fully of falacys. If an argument is what you call this mess of ad homein.

Doc is, of course, exactly right. In addition to what he said, the American Society for Bariatric Surgery has some pretty specific guidelines about who qualifies for the procedure. (And no, I did not get that info on wikipedia.) Having a few "extra curves" doesn't qualify you, and if the husband isn't a total idiot, he'd find that out while doing his research. I'm guessing this gift wasn't out of the blue. It's likely that OP struggles with her weight, and maybe her self-esteem too. His gift was probably well-intentioned, if a bit insensitive. Maybe he should offer to join her in a weight-loss routine, or fitness routine if he isn't overweight as well. Healthy cooking classes and a fun physical exercise program would be enjoyable for them to do together. Although it may be tougher for him than just paying a bill, and tougher for her than going under the knife, it could be the start of a long-term healthier lifestyle, as well as a way to spend quality time together to strengthen their marriage.

yay for irish and doc for covering all the bases and showing why mr knew what he was talking about when he said she was obese( this is all assuming of course the husband is not a DA)

Since when is wikipedia a, "generally accepted source of knowledge and a viable form of proof..." Seriously, try to use wikipedia as a source in a scholastic paper, or any type of research paper, see what happens. I'm not saying wikipedia isn't a decent way to get a general idea about something, but to claim it's an, "accepted source...." is just wrong.

generalasskicker, reread my comment. As for the rest of your comment, I haven't the slightest clue what you're talking about. I was just commenting on bariatric surgery, not if OP was obese or not.

Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize you knew the OP personally and knew her exact weight. I also didn't realize you were a doctor and knew all the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery. My apologies.

Zachary - Please look at your 7th and 46th comments. It seems as though you should be focusing on earning a high school diploma, instead of continuing to degenerate on this website.

@110 They? They who? The only they who is even remotely relevant here would be the FML Staff, and I don't recall them ever telling us not to use Wikipedia. I'm assuming you mean "they" as in the people who grade your papers, but I'm pretty sure that they also tell you "2" use proper spelling and grammar. Since you aren't following "their" rules, you shouldn't be enforcing them. @121 First of all, calm down. The comments section on FML was made for commenting. If we weren't supposed to comment here, there wouldn't be a special place designed for it.

Oh my gosh seriously! I was hoping someone else would say it!!!!!!! ha ha jeez it's her life. There are people with FMLs that are way worse than this so why spend time arguing about it!!!!

curvy is not fat. Kim Kardashian has curves. Scarlett johansson has curves. Beth dito is obese. people in that weight range are obese not fucking curvy. I'm sick of fat chicks being called curvy, seriously wtf. fat is fat man! it's not curves- it's fucking rolls of flab!

Ever stop to think maybe he's an overjudgemental fuckhole? Screw you for assuming. Maybe she IS a heathly weight but he thinks she should be an effing stick figure. Think before you speak, asshole.

Stupid phone added my comment before I was done typing it. @Mr_Zachary how do you think the gift was free? Their money is most likely combined since they're married. There is no way to know if OP is really obese to need such a drastic surgery. I think the situation is FYL for OP and her husband. OP for having such a clueless man and FYL for the husband no longer being attracted to his wife.

@ mr Zachary: I gave you a thumbs down because you sound like an arrogant jerk, not because of anything else. Also, yes, I agree that most of the time wiki has correct information, however, there is a reason that you aren't allowed to cite it in academic situations.

thats an awesome gift if youre fat. shut up and accept that fact that he cares enough about you to try and keep you around a while.

Reply

No, it's a stupid gift, maybe she's barely overweight. This type of surgery presents risks during and post-op. Don't insult people based on assumptions as she didn't explicitly mention she's actually obese, the husband may have a warped view of ideal weight. It makes you appear sort of dumb when you act like an asshole.

u dumb idiot; just because you're a tubby doesnt mean it was weight loss surgery. it could just as easily have been surgery for a nose job or boob job.

Bariatric surgery is hardly anything like a haircut, a new wardrobe or a complete makeover. You also cannot compare it with free liposuction or a free boob job; it is more serious than cosmetic surgery. If OP's husband is as shallow as you make him sound, then she should just leave him.

Keyword being "if". This kind of surgery is only for the morbidly obese anyway, not just fat or chubby. Besides her husband might find that healthy weight means fat and needs major surgery.

Reply

94 - She never said she WAS morbidly obese however, which would make it an FML. If she was fat she would most likely be thrilled. Maybe a little offended, but not enough to decline. That would be my reaction, anyway. *shrugs* Nice profile pic though. lol

Having surgery won't automatically keep her around longer. First of all, bariatric surgery has a very high risk of serious complications, including death. Secondly, if she is obese, she will still have excess plaque built up in her arteries and will most likely have an inactive lifestyle and/or eat too much unhealthy foods. That can kill you weather you're fat or skinny. The only way to definitively prolong your lifespan if you are obese is to change your lifestyle for the better. Surgery is not a magic answer to everything.

Male enhancement is different... Being fat is unhealthy, and he was just trying to help. Give the guy a break.

Surgery won't make her healthy. Skinny by itself is not automatically healthy. If she is obese, she needs to change her lifestyle. Skinny people can also have plaque in their arteries and high blood pressure and such.
