I am 38 years old, married and have a 2 1/2 year old son.In 1985 I was hit by a car, so the heavier and the older I get I really have a hard time.I would love to be able to get down on the floor and play a game with my son or even chase him around outside. I don't take him outside on my own for fear he will run and I can't run after him. I need to have the surgery done so I can be better physically and so he can have a mother to be around to do things with not just to sit with.

8-2-01- Well I got home today and not feeling that great. I still have the what did I do to myself. Woke up Monday night with three drains in my stomach, hooked up to 2 I.V.'s, I really thought what have I done.I hope it is worth the pain,next week when I go see Dr. Peters. I was never told I would be coming home with a drain in. Will update more after my 1 week visit.
7-29-01- Well the night before surgery and I never thought it would get here. I'm very excited to get it over but am very upset to be leaving my son for 4 or 5 days. (he'll be with my husband but that's not the same as being with mom not dad). Will update when I come home. This site has been a god sent for me, I'm on every night checking things out.
7-15-01- 15 days to surgery and I'm starting to get nervous, and I'm constantly thinking about the surgery and saying to myself soon it will be over and I can walk without so much pain.7-18 is my appointment with the nutritionist I will let you know how that goes.
7-9-01-I am relly excited I got a surgery date today, it will be on Monday 7-30-01. I can't wait to get to the other side.
7-5-01- notified by Dr. Peters office that I was approved and that Aetna actually approved the surgery late on Tuesday 7-3-01. I am so happy, but also a nervous wreck.
6-28-01-had second visit with Dr. Peters. took a test and passed with flying colors. I have to make an appointment with the nutritionist before I can have surgery.
6-14-01-first visit today with Dr. Peters. I was really nervous, but his office staff made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Peters is wonderful. He tells it like it is.Robbie in Dr. Peters office is so nice and made me feel so comfortable at my first appointment I was scared to death I had no idea what to expect. Dr. Peters addressed the risk of surgery and everything that could happen. The risk is worth it though because there's a risk being like this.
