I am 40 years old , mother to a 22 month old son...
I am 40 years old , mother to a 22 month old son and am tired of the tire. I do not have a thyroid and have type two diabetes. I'm hoping this will help m get to ground zero and help me loose weight, sort of like starting new. I am nervous but also anxious. I'm getting it done in Cartagena Colombia July 17 2013!!!
Soooo went in to late my doctor know I was going to Colombia for the TT. Her opinion was that if my blood sugar level was high as it was 4 months ago I should not do the TT. So did the bloodwork yesterday and waiting results. ;(
Uff thank God all blood work came back fine and been given the green light for surgery!!
2 week count down
Ok so now it's the two week countdown and I'm feeling really nervous, haven't been able to sleep and just want to fast forward to get it over with. I'm a little scared of my flight back and changing planes in Miami.
I'm leaving tomorrow for Colombia and on Wednesday is the operation!! Super nervous and anxious to fast forward 1 month. Please pray all goes well
2 nd time
Well I was devastated that I couldn't do my TT due to my diabetes ;( I made the trip 6 hr flight to be told NO grrrrr. So I came back home and ate ate ate. Then Jan 2014 I decided no more and have lost 25 lbs so far. I'm beginning to look into TT again.
1st consult with Dr. Kasrai
Seems like I'm going to have the TT here in Toronto, so I started to do research. I had a consult with Dr. Leila Kasrai. Eva -- her assistant was very sweet and helpful. So the Dr checked me out, lifted my fat--- ughhhhh and discussed what I wanted done. I'm kind of disappointed in myself because I didn't really ask her important questions, I had to take my 2 1/2 year old with me. She usually does drain less TT but since I'm diabetic she would place one drain, and the surgery would be in the hospital. The total cost would be $10,390 higher than I expected but then again this is Colombia.
Oops meant to say this ISN'T Colombia
