Dear Lara
If you have such a large amount of weight to lose and not even Xenical has been able to make a difference then I would suggest that you consider having a gastric bypass. At the First Regional Obesity Congress held in SA a number of speakers presented papers which showed that gastric bypass surgery is an option in patients who cannot lose weight in any other way. Ask your dr to refer you to a surgeon in your are that does these ops.
