I have 2 children and had a 50 lb weight gain. Was diagnosed with a thyroid problem while in the Navy. I broke my leg and pelvis while on a duty related accident. I slowly gained the weright and couldnt shed it. started thyroid medicine and one yr later had not lost a lb. wanted this surgery for some time and had plenty of stretch marks. once I realized i was not gonna be able to lose the weight or get rid of my stretch marks, i decided to finally get the surgery. I am 32 and knew i wasnt having any more children and this was the time for me.
I had the surger 5 days ago and am so glad i did. im still sore and swollen but its getting better. i didnt have drainage tubes so the process is a little different from others i talked to. i dont have to worry about emptying the tubes.
everyday is diffrent. i cant wait till i am fully recovered and can get up and get out of the house.
