Margaret M. Inman M.D.
I have an appointment with Dr. Inman on November 26th, it was the soonest I could get in. I have heard good and positive things about Dr. Inman and her staff at St. V's Bariatric Center, so I am hoping that I will be able to get my questions answered and to be able to go through with this. I know it can be an emotional rollercoaster while waiting for approval and such, so I will work on making it a positive experience for me.
I met with Dr. Inman on November 26th and was impressed with her energy and honesty. She answered a lot of questions and treated me respectfully. Even though this surgery is very risky, I feel more at ease because she is a trauma surgeon and deals with emergencies all the time. As for dealing with my personal issues (co-morbities) relating to weight loss surgery, she suggested a vena cava filter to be put in my vein to block blood clots, which is an important thing with me since I have coagulation problems. I was comfortable with her professional manner; she is an intense woman and I expect she will be just as intense as a surgeon.

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
Knowing I had been gaining weight and unable to lose any of it made me very miserable. Going on a diet, just to fail 3 months later was an even greater hardship. So much in fact that I gave up on dieting. Emotionally it was hard, because I felt that life was passing me by, that I was just existing, trapped in my home. My family had to be so cautious, everywhere we went, they had to find places for me to sit so I could rest between steps. I was out of breath all the time, even going upstairs to bed each night was a chore and inevitably I would fall asleep in my recliner. My husband had to stop enjoying his life too, he felt that it was "no fun" if I did not join him. I felt bad that I was a burden to my family.
