I had stomach surgery in Oklahoma City with Dr. Mason Jett, June 2. At the time of my surgery I weighed 322 according to the hospital scales. As of today, August 9, 1999, I weigh 291. When the doctor went in to do my surgery, I had
a hernia that had to be repaired and mesh put in to cover
my whole surgery because I had hernia surgery just a few months before that and the doctor did not want any more complications from hernia's. I do have one problem with my diet. I cannot use any kind of artificial sweetner because it gives me migranes. I'm sure I could loose much more if I did not have this problem. The hard thing to be about eating is when there is something that I really like and would like to eat more of it, but can't. You just really have to change your eating habits. When you have eaten as much as you want of the foods you like for so many years it is hard to make that change. It would help to have others that have gone through this to communicate with and share the feelings you have.
