My name is Tiffany. I just turned 40 in August of 2011. I am hoping to be having my REbirthday in October. I have chosen the RNY and my surgeon is Dr. Erik Throop in Evansville, Indiana. I am married to a very kind man and we have two children (daughter age 17 and son age 6). I have not always been overweight. I actually didn't start gaining weight until I was around 23 years old. It took many many years for me to put the weight on and many many more for me to actually see it in the mirror. In the last year my health has begun to take a few turns for the worst. I have very high blood pressure and sleep apnea. In February I also had to have surgery for a herniated disc that resulted in cauda equina syndrome and left me with a lot of difficulty walking. While I know that all of my sypmtoms will not be relieved by weight loss surgery, I am very hopeful that it will allow me to walk with a less pronounced limp. I pray that everyone is blessed with a safe and enlightening weight loss journey.
