I am 38 yrs old and morbidly obese (atleast that's what it says in my medical records) I have developed many health issues due to the excess fat. I have sleep apnea, arthritis in many joints... especially knees ( ortho dr. says that I would qualify for knee replacement in my right knee if it weren't for my weight)... I have acid reflux, have had my gallbladder removed, have ankles that turn easily (ouch) really too many things to mention here... I am 164 pounds overweight and my doctors have been wanting me to do gastric bypass for 5 years now. When I finally did decide to go through with it 3 years ago my husband's job changed and his insurance won't cover. Now I started a new job and they do cover so hopefully 6 months from now I will have the surgery. I am still in the research phase of it and wanting any advice and support I can get.
