I was tired of driving by the giant billboard ads and thinking, "i only I could, If only i looked like that, if only I could wear that too...", i was tired of walking up a "flight" of steps that was only really eight stair steps up and feeling like my lungs would explode, i hated having to tie my shoes, because bending over to reach the ties was an extreme effort, my face would go red i felt as if my head would pop open from the over exertion, i hated watching the door being held open and then as i approached feeling the wind of that same door fly at my face as i almost walked into it, i was tired of ordering food anywhere just to have the person taking my order look at me and seeing in their eyes, hearing their thoughts knowing what they were thinking, seeing them sigh as if to say, " does she really need to eat that? why didn't she just order a carrot and water"...
So in 2000, i really cant remember the exact day or month, I made the call, I made the decision, I arranged for my first meeting with the Doctors, the consultation that changed everything and on May 19, 2001, I became the Proud owner of my new Fobi Pouch, I said Goodbye to the old over grown enlarged stomach and never looked back. The pinpoint surgeries that they offer now, were still in their infancy and so due to the fact that my gall bladder would also be removed, I had the archaeic surgery the one where they open you from sternum to belly button and create for you a new stomach. But, I don't regret it, I don't regret the scar, it's my proof, my glorious wound, its my pride i never hide it, i wear bikini tops and bottoms and when asked what that scar is from, I proudly announce that it is a reminder of the day That I changed my life.
