My motivation are my kids. I have been considering surgery for about five years. I have tried all sorts of diets watched my food intake. you name it I've done it. My goal is to be pain free. I live a pretty active lifestyle but this past year I noticed some things about my body. when I wake up I'm in pain walking and running hurts so bad I just want to cry.
The pain has slowed me down. I know this is best thing for me but I am really scared and confused about my choice. I am afraid that I will not be able to do it, what if something happens to me. I have had friends have this surgery and I see them suffering from depression and I don't want that.
My surgery is a week a way and I am nervous. My current weight is 275. Reading everyone's experiences helps me a little, i am just worried about the depression part.
