I'm 34 years old. I have been over weight for about 10 years. Before that I was always a normal weight. I was even considered underweight when I was a child. I started gaining weight about the time my marriage fell apart. I was put on Paxil for depression and gained 80 lbs in 6 months! I lost 60 lbs of that when I got divorced but then the weight gradually crept back on. At the first of the year I was at an all time high of 247. I have decided to have weight loss surgery about 3 years ago but I didn't have insurance that would cover it. I have since changed insurance. I have done a lot of research about the different types of surgery. I had an appt with my pcp in Jan and asked her what she thought about my having the surgery. She said she thought it was a good idea. She has seen me struggle with my weight for years. I weigh more now than ever in my life, and now it seems like I gain weight so easily. I have made this decision mostly because I have started to have a lot of medical problems. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides, asthma, urinary incontinence, GERD and I found out recently that I have sleep apnea and high blood sugar. It seems like about every 6 months or so something else pops up that I need medication for. I'm going to have the RNY. I should have surgery the first of Oct .
