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.
