Hi - I know how you feel - i am a mother of 3 - very nervous as my op is scheduled for 9 april - just two weeks away eeeeeekkkkkkk - i am now wieghing 117.5kgs. and am currently on the pre- op diet - i know what its like to be mad with one's self - actually loathing one's self and not wanting to look in the mirror. The thing is - if i don't do this now - what will my quality of life be - probably a 0 - as my mobility is effected & my self worth - just make sure you go through the right channels - dietician, specialist, physician,phycologist - do you have medical ? or does the state pay for it ? my husband & I have taken out a second bond to pay for this operation as my medical aid does not cover it - let me know how things are going..............
