Hypopituitarism and bariatric operation

Hi...is there anyone out there who is over 60 and has Hypopituitarism and has had a bariatric operation? My op is pending and I think I have googled too much and frightened myself .as 1/200 die. Also the experiences I have read are always with people under 50. I would be grateful to hear of some people who are in my position. Thank you.

I'm sorry it is a worry for you at present and hope one of our members will respond.

In the meantime this is a link I've just read.

Are you having the bariatric surgery for weight loss? Are you also hypothyroid?

Hi Georgina,

How did the surgery go? I am also panhypopit and considering bariatric surgery. I'm a bit nervous as well. Any thoughts?
