I'm 300 lbs, 5'7", do I qualify for the gastric sleeve?

I just want to qualify for the gastric sleeve procedure. It has been a tough journey. I got close to qualifying a few years ago and then I went on a binge. I had to move and my new apartment was right across the street from a prominent food court. Needless to say, I went on a food bender and gained back the 75 lbs that I lost.

A gastric sleeve procedure is indicated for patients ages 18-65 with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40.  Based on your height and weight, your BMI is 47.  So you would qualify.
