I stayed after my info seminar to talk to Dr Rupp abt my situation and my previous denial and my problem with my PCP and he listened and didn't rush and felt even though I was a lightweight that will all my co-morbidities I deserved the surgery. I saw him next for my pre-op and he took alot of time with me to answer all my questions. The next time was right before surgery and he has such a good energy I wasn't nervous at all. I saw him out of recovery and he gave me some additional meds for the pain in my side and he the gave me the ok to leave the next day. Being I had gone through a different surgery center with my previous attempt, I must tell you, his requirements are so much thorough and I learned so much more that I am unsure I would have been successful before! He's great!

I have been overweight my whole life. No matter what attempts I've made, any weight lost would be short lived. It has gotten worse worse over the years and I hate the thought of where I will be in 5 years at this rate. about 5 years ago, I was diagnosed with hypo thyroid after a 90 lb weight gain over 4 months. The meds took some weight off but not all of it. That started the spiral and now I have Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, joint pain, fatigue, depression and anxiety. I also had an emergency hysterectomy last summer that put me into immediate menopause. Now that we have the hormones in check, I am hoping 2008 will be my year. I was denied my surgery 1 day before it was scheduled Valentines Day 2007 and since have got a new doc and new insurance and hope this will finally become a reality and I can get off most these meds....12 pills and 2 shots a day for the rest of my life....bleh!!! No fun. I want to be active again! Be excited to wear clothes. Be able to do things without being so tired.
