I have been waiting for surgery for a very long time. I had my referral sent to Halifax in 2004, and the wait was so long my doctor sent another referral to Bathurst. Anyway, I have been going to a Registered Nutritionist for over a year. Well I got a letter in the mail about 3 weeks ago inviting me to an information session in July. I am was and kind of still am excited to have another step down. I told the lady I am seeing for weight loss about my session coming up and she told me that surgery won't work for me. In my weight loss journey this past year and a half, we have tried everything from high protienand low carb, to low protein no carbs etc. So she believes that no surgery will work. But to be honest what we have tried doesn't seem to be working either. She told me she has a lady coming to her now who had band surgery and has lost nothing. She said it is enable the lady to get enough food in for her to lose weight. I'm worried that she maybe right that surgery may not work. But at over 300lbs still even after over a year of trying it the "normal"way, I was so excited to finally be getting closer to a chance at a healthier, more mobile life. I was so sure this was the right decision, and once it was my turn to get surgery that it was going to be a beginning to a new chapter in my life. Now I don't know, I feel like I have been kicked in the gut. So nothing will work? I feel like a Failure, not even WLS will help me?
I apologize for the rant, I am just at a loss.
