Hi everyone! My name is Tanya and I am new to the group. I am 31 and I am from Minnesota. Would love some input/advice/anything. Anything is appreciated!
I am at my all time high weight of 334 (I believe...I haven't weighed in awhile) and I am miserable. Ugh...hate even typing that out. I finally hit my rock bottom, as I call it. My health issues are: Chronic Migraines, PCOS and horrible Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Diarrhea.
I have been considering having RNY surgery for a long time and last night I finally made the decision that YES, I am doing this! I am 100% ready for this. Last night I watched the online seminar that is on my hospitals website and requested the health packet. I am going to call first thing Monday morning and get something scheduled for a consult.
My husband had RNY surgery 3 years ago and lost over 220lbs so I know it works! He went from barely being able to walk far distances to being a marathon runner. So proud of him.
This is not my body and this is not me. I am miserable. I have some anxiety about going through the process...mainly how long it will take, not getting approved, etc. What should I expect when I start this? Also...I am hoping that they are willing to work with me and my insurance in the fact that I met my deductible for the year, so I am hoping I can have surgery yet this year. is that reasonable?
Thanks for reading my long post. I have been reading posts all day and you guys are all amazing and so supportive of one another. Also are there any local groups on fb as well?
