Thx all for your support. There is no question in my mind that I WILL move forward with the surgery. It will most likely be laparoscopic, however I was warned that hernia surgeries beginning laparoscopically can sometimes turn into the old fashioned slice-and-dice variety depending on what they find when they start rooting around in there.
I'm thinking that my anxieties are strong enough that there is no way...especially after making this all so PUBLIC :-) ... that I will allow myself to drop the ball as a result of the surgery.
After dropping all this weight, now wearing 48 pants for the first time in decades...there just is NO turning back for me now.
Failure truly ISN'T an option!
