I was diagnosed with Diabetes in 2005. I was on glador 1 mg. For the past 5 years I have been taking Metformin 500 mg BD, Vildaglyptin 50 mg BD, and Telmisartan H 40 BD for hypertension. Recently my sugar levels were elevated. Doctors prescribed 1000 mg Metformin BD and Voglibose in addition to the above. I also am taking BGR-34 4 tablets a day daily for one month now. I take statins and clonazepam for anxiety. I live alone and have no much control over what I eat because I have to depend on outside food. My job though sedentary is stressful and so is my personal life. Of late I feel no desire to eat and digestion is very bad and there is bloating. I take patoprazole 40 mg and Domperidone 10 mg once daily. there is a persistent chronic pain in one shoulder. Most importantly, I feel terribly weak and dizzy. I am unable to think clearly and am always stressed. Zero exercise tolerance. Darkness before the eyes. What is the problem with me?

It is completely curable......???? what is the success rate of this surgery......???
