    Ok brace yourselves for this pic I just took.
    Ok maybe not as it won’t let me add a picture of my HUGE beer belly.

    I’ll try making it my profile pic if only to make me feed bad.

    My BMI is 32.5 (ish) and I see lots of info saying I need to be over 35 for a gastric sleeve.

    I’m going private so I’m wondering if I could find a surgeon who would accept me as I am ? (Even happy to go overseas)

    I have seriously considered going on a binge to get me over 35 BMI but honestly, if I apply with “cash-in-hand”, could I be accepted as I am ?

    Hi John, I believe I have read posts on hear from people who paid privately with a lower BMI, have you contacted any of the providers to ask them this question?
    Good luck
