Best Decision I Ever Made but Ask Yourself if You Want It for Life - Scottsdale, AZ
on 20 Oct 2012
HI i AM 45 years old and weigh 267 pounds, i AM getting ready to have the bypass surgery. My doctor recommended that i HAVE the surgery back in February so this is not something i just jumped into i thought about it a lot. I HAVE went through the whole process and have a surgery date for Dec. 2nd but instead of being happy for me and encouraging me i AM getting nothing but negativity from my friends and family. I AM just so aggravated at this point my kids all said the same thing " why don't you wait till after Christmas" and my husband just keeps saying are you sure about this. You see i have a auto-immune disease and i HAVE BEEN really sick for 3 years including being bed ridden for eight months. I HAVE fought my way back and besides taking a lot of meds and getting a treatment of gamuglobulin every two weeks i AM back doing everything i did before. I HAVE type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure so that's why my doctor thinks this is a good thing for me. I just don't understand all the negativity from everybody why can't they just be happy for me? I HAVE a new grandbaby, my first one and i want to be able to keep up with him during his terrible two's i think my biggest concern is the excess skin after i loose the weight and the first two weeks after surgery doing the liquids for two weeks.
