I want to say KUDOS to the whole team. My surgery was done on 3/20/2012. I reported to the Hospital at 10:30 am and I was so nervous however I was put at ease. This has been a long journey and I finally reach my destination . However my real journey is just begining and now I have something to write about. Also , I was so happy to see Barbara on the unit because it was a familiar face when I feeling a little down. Then I was please to that Dr David von Rueden came in to follow -up post op .

I can remember the first time I heard of gastric by pass it was from one of my co-workers .I actually watched her lose weight before my very eyes and I was amazed. Upon speaking with her I obtained the surgeons information and went to the information session and she came with me .I then began the process of having pre-op testing and was schedule to have it in 11/09. At that time I was weighting at 255-245lbs . I was eating but was saying eat everything before you have it done. I was fooling myself .November came and went with the insurance i had to come up with 2000.00. I didn't have it and then lost my job. I then went back to taking the pills Phen-phen .I did lost I came down to 232.. Then the winter came and now when i got a new job and found out the insurance pays 100% i went back to the surgeon . I weight in at 237 but my blood pressure was 190/100 so now I am taking b/p meds. Sleep apnea ,high blood pressure ,HAIC 5.7?????????????. I said lets do this . However My labs revealed HPYLORI WOW .I completed the antibiotics but i have to attend support groups 2 and speak with the psychologist and nutritionist and come up with 900 dollars for program fee .
