Hello all, I am a 54 year old wife, Mom, & RN. I was born "fat" (18 inches 8# 4 oz) & have never had a skinny day in my life. I have been married for 37. We have 3 beautiful children & 9 grand kids (8 living on earth). My son's girlfriend has 2 beautiful girls also. Our 12 year old granddaughter, Lauren died in November of 2011.
I had the lap band 7-16-08 & lost about 50 lbs the first year, then I started gaining to where I'm almost back to my beginning weight. Since Lauren's death I've put on about 20 lbs. I am a stress eater, always have been. The Dr told me that I'm considered a "failed band" by the insurance rules.
I am planning a revision to an RNY as soon as the insurance approves it. I'm double covered & both policies will pay for the revision surgery. Right now I'm just waiting to hear what hoops I must jump through. Wish me luck . I'm looking forward to being a loser.
