I look back at my pictures of recent years and then at my most recent picture of me in the huge chair and I'm like WOW! I still have all the same physical disabilities; Osteoarthritis, degenerative disk disease, Carpal tunnel syndrome, RA, herniated back disk, loads of painful scar tissue, diverticulitis and numerous other aches & pains. I also now have a pacemaker-Bradycardia. Additionally, as a result of an accident in 2009 I have a dislocated rotator cuff with extensive muscle tears and nerve damage as well as nerve damage in my left leg due to diabetes-pre-surgery. Yet, despite all the ongoing ailments which are quite painful I feel 95% better. I have more energy, can walk further and longer and I am happy. My outlook on my future is more positive.
For anyone considering weight loss surgery..be it the RNY like I had, the sleeve or the pump find a good surgeon you trust and if, like myself you can't seem to loose even an ounce, go for it! You will be glad you did. Try however to get the surgery before your health conditions become irreversible.
God Bless You My SP friends and find your happiness in the new you!
