Juan Cendan, M.D.
I met my surgeon a few years ago when I was checking into getting a mole in my Birthmark removed from my leg. I talked to him about weightloss surgery a little bit while I was there. After a long ordeal with having another child and dealing with severe post-partam depression, being put on numerous anti-anxiety and depression drugs...i kept gaining weight..now here I am. I go in to meet him for pre-op on the 23rd...rnrnrnSo the 23rd came and went and I am ready for surgery! He really made me feel more comfortable about my decision and all that goes along with it..rnrnI am home now and wanted to let others know that my doctor and his staff were exceptional before and after the surgery. They came and saw me about 3 times a day each after my surgery and were always checking me to be sure that my scars were healing properly and I was progressing along okay. I am glad that I chose this staff!

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I seem to be a very strong willed person when it comes to something want...and who does not want to look good? I did really well on the Adkins diet and then got pregnant, which really was the whole purpose of losing the weight. After having another c-section, i ended up having post partum depression and could not seem to et out of it. I had a lot of personal things going on at the time and could not focus on my weight. I tended to overeat at times out of emotion and started feeling like I wanted to hide what I ate when certain people were around.

My story is probably as common as everyone else's out there struggling with obesity.After having 2 beautiful children and a bad bout of Depression...Here I am! I have almost lost all hope and am turning to surgery for help! I have always tried to look great...but I know after seeing the Christmas pics...that I don't. look so great,no matter how hard I try..I am getting frustrated with living life and constantly being held back and slowed down due to my weight. I am tired of getting out of the shower and sweating while I try to dry off....I mean...kinda defeats the purpose of a shower, don't you think?? I cannot get out on the field and play baseball with my 10 year old son because my feet swell up to the size of a baseball!! My 3 year old daughter is just a ball of energy, but at least we can NAP together!! That is terrible..isn't it?? I went from being a blonde cutie with a nice body-nothing to turn heads..(although before kids I turned a few!!)..to being an overweight mommy that tries to do things for her family to make them know she cares...and in the end, feeling like she ruined their time because she got aggravated over something stupid and minute. My husband is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I envy him sometimes because he can eat whatever the heck he wants and NEVER gains a pound!!! He supports me though and helps me as much as he can, but he cannot relate...That is why I am here... I am looking to make some new friends to help me through this journey...I've tried the therapy thing to no avail..there is nothing about my life that deserves therapy, besides my temper and anxiety....because I am so fat that I have made myself miserable!! I also have Fibromyalgia and Spina Bifida..so losing some weight will help me all the way around.
