Hi there folks!
I have been lurking OH for years. Seriously contemplated surgery for about 3. First decided on lap band, now I'm at the end of the process for the bypass. I've done my nuts, my psy, my rn's... all that jazz. My next appt. is my surgeon consult, which I guess I will be setting up my surgery as well.
A little info. on me. I'm 5'2 ish, 235ish, 33 years old. I have two little ones... 5 and 6. They are a HANDFUL. I have a great husband whom has been a size 30 since I met over 15 years ago.
So yeah. So nervous, but I've made my decision!!!! I'm doing this!!!
THings I am most nervous about...
1. I'm a BIGGGGGG baby!! Totally nervous about the surgery and the post op.
2. I have panic disorder which is under control by medications. Nervous about how my meds will be affected immediately post op. I've also heard people go through some depression due to hormone shifts. This is a major concern of mine.
3. really I guess that is it, but those are kind of a big deal deal for me.
So thanx for listening!!!! any advice would be appreciated :)
I will let you know how my surgeon appt goes....
Oh one last question... when did you get your insurance approval?
Just had my RNY on 7.2.12!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!
