Thadeus Trus, M.D.
After starting at the Vermont Program I have had to change over to NH Program. Dr. Laycock is the head of the program there but as there are 4 surgeons I'm not exactly sure who I will be having. I figure placing his name here is a good start. I've heard nothing but good things about the NH Program and hoping to get through things with little difficulty.

As long as I can remember I have been overweight or as my BMI severly morbidly obese. Even as a first grader I was the biggest in my class. I was tall and wide. My whole family save for just a few have also been big most of their lives. When I was younger I was adopted by my grandmother since my mom had a few issues to deal with. As the years went by I learned habits from her which weren't always good. She died young - 68 - due to complications from Diabetes and Heart Disease. My grandfather also died in his 50's from Heart Disease. I'm only 34 and I'm so majorly at risk and in worse shape then they both were. I want to become healthy.
Like everyone else I've tried everything out there. All the special diets, pills, gizmo's, you name it. It was always gung-ho at first and did well and then I would get bored or hungry or something life changing would happen and I would revert back to old habits. I will not see 40 if I keep up this pace!!!
Back in January 2008 I saw endocrinology and was told "You will drop dead soon if you don't take care of this!" Well talk about an eye opener. He was quite blunt considering he'd never seen me before and it was the first thing out of him mouth. Like any normal human being I became very emotional and lost it. I got very depressed for several days. Then I started researching my options and WLS. As per his recommendation I was referred to a WLS Surgeon in Burlington, VT.
As of May 12, 2008 I'm in the Bariatric Program!!!! I'm hoping to have surgery sometime in Nov/Dec. I will be having an Open Gastric Bypass because of my BMI and co-morbidities.
