Hi, try Medical Travel Czech - I had my surgery done there and I was very happy with everything - the treatment, the results itself - yep and the price was great too, of course. So, if I were you, Id definitely go abroad for the surgery...

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its very helpful and effective especially in morbidly obese individuals. Daily brisk walk for half an hour and dietary modification should be done in addition to gastric balloon.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
