I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVING THIS DONE. I AM SICK OF BEING OVERWEIGHT. BUT TO BE HONEST I AM SCARED TO DEATH. MY FEAR IS DYING ON THE OPERATING TABLE. I TRY NOT TO THINK ABOUT THAT BUT ITS HARD NOT TO. I HAVE A THREE YEAR OLD AND I AM SINGLE SO SHE HAS NO ONE BUT ME.
TO KEEP MY THOUGHTS AWAY FROM THIS I AM TRYING TO FIND OUT EVERYTHING I CAN. SO IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO PLEASE LET ME KNOW. ALL I HAVE HEARD IS GOOD THINGS. IT SOUNDS WEIRD BUT I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO HEAR ABOUT THE BAD SO I CAN KIND OF KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT.
march 21, 2001
well i go in monday the 26 for pre-op. i am scared to death. i really want to have this surgery but that fear is always there. i keeep telling myself think of how good you will feel when it done and you start losing. i am so ready to do this. if you have any advice for me please let me know.
march 26, 2001
well i went today to my pre-op. i have a heart mermur and they think i have sleep apea. so i have to get tests done and i cant have my surgury on the 9. i am really bummed. i watch kids for a living and i have let them all know that i needed off on the 9 and they worked their schedule around me. i feel awful that now i have to go back and tell them i dont know when i will be having it. nothing ever goes right for me. i dont know if i want to do this at all.
today i went and had an echo done and i got an appointment set up for next wed. for the sleep study. i got really lucky getting the sleep study so soon. most places were booked until june. i feel a little bit better now. maybe since i am getting this done before april 9 i can still keep my surgury date(fingers crossed) i dought it though. but at least maybe i can get in a couple of weeks from now. maybe in a couple of years i will laugh about this.
I GOT MY PAPERS IN THE MAIL TODAY FOR MY SLEEP STUDY. IT DOES NOT SOUND BAD BUT A PERSON STAYS IN THE ROOM WITH YOU ALL NIGHT. I WILL NEVER GET TO SLEEP. TIME SEEMS TO BE GOING SO SLOW NOW. I WANT MY NEW DATE AND FOR THIS TO BE ALL OVER WITH. I AM READY TO EXPERIENCE THE THIN SIDE OF LIFE. OR AT LEAST THE HEALTHIER. MY KNEES ARE KILLING ME. MY COMPUTER IS UPSTAIRS SO WHEN I WANT TO GET ON IT I HAVE TO CLIMB A BUNCH OF STAIRS. WHEN I GET TO THE TOP I AM OUT OF BREATH AND IT HURTS MY KNEES TO CLIMB. SOMETIMES THEY FEEL LIKE THEY ARE GOING TO GIVE OUT ON ME WHEN I AM CLIMBING. THE UP SIDE OF IT IS I AM GETTING A LITTLE BIT OF EXERCISE WHEN I COME UP HERE. I AM JUST SO UNCOMFORTABLE.
WELL I WENT IN AND DID MY SLEEP STUDY. THEY SAID IT TAKES ABOUT TWO WEEKS TO GET THE RESULTS. I TOLD THE NURSE THAT I CANT HAVE MY SURGURY UNTIL I GET THE RESULTS AND SHE PUT A URGENT NOTE ON IT AND SAID THEY SHOULD HAVE THE RESULTS BY TUESDAY. I ASKED HER ALSO IF SHE SEEN ANYTHING WRONG BECAUSE SHE WAS THERE ALL NIGHT AND SHE SAID SHE DIDENT SEE ANYTHING WRONG. I WAS GLAD TO SEE THAT BUT SHE ALSO SAID THE DOCTOR HAD TO LOOK AT IT. THE LADY DURING THE DAY SAID SHE DID NOT FIND ANYTHING. I WAS GLAD SO MAYBE NOW I CAN GET BACK ON TRACK. IM READY. IF IT WASENT FOR THIS STUPID STUFF MONDAY WOULD BE MY SURGURY!! I HATE THAT. IM READY TO GO NOW!!
APRIL 6, 2001
I KNOW THAT I UPDATED ALREADY BUT I WENT TO PRIME TIME CARE TONIGHT BECAUSE THIS MORNING I WOKE UP WITH A SORE THROAT AND I THOUGHT IT WOULDF GO AWAY. IT DIDENT. NOW I DONT FEEL AS BAD NOT HAVING SURGURY MONDAY BECAUSE I WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO ANYWAY WITH BEING SICK. THEY THINK I HAVE STREP THROAT. I WONT KNOW UNTIL TOMMORROW. I KNOW IT SEEMS FUNNY THAT I WOULD WISH TO BE SICK BUT I WAS DEVISTATED WHEN I HAD TO POSTPON MY SURGURY. I HATE TO BE SICK BUT AT LEAST I KNOW I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE IT ANYWAY.
april 10, 2001
WELL YESTERDAY WOULD HAVE BEEN MY SURGURY. I AM SO BUMMED. THE UP SIDE I CALLED TODAY AND FOUND OUT THE RESULTS FROM MY ECHO. ITS SLIGHT AND CAN BE FIXED WITH ANTIBIOTIC. THE THING THAT I AM MAD ABOUT IS THAT WHEN I CALLED THE LADY ASKED FOR MY NUMBER SO SHE COULD GET MY CHART AND CALL ME BACK. I TOLD HER I WAS JUST WANTING TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY GOT MY RESULTS AND SHE ASKED IF I HAD MY SLEEP STUDY DONE. THEY MAKE EVERYONE HAVE ONE!!! I WAS WORRIED THAT I MIGHT QUIT BREATHING ONE NIGHT AND IT WAS FOR NOTHING!! I UNDERSTAND IT WAS FOR MY BENIFIT THAT I HAVE IT DONE BUT COME ON NOW. THEY COULD HAVE TOLD ME IT WAS STANDARD PROCEDURE. I WAS SO MAD. MAD IS ALL I SEEM TO EVER BE.
APRIL 12, 2001
WELL I CALL TODAY TO FIND OUT IF THEY GOT THE RESULTS OF MY SLEEP STUDY AND THEY DONT. I CALLED THE HOSPITAal WHERE I HAD IT DONE AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THE DOCTOR TOOK IT MONDAY TO GO OVER IT AND IT SHOULD BE DONE ANY TIME. NO LATER THAN MONDAY. YEAH!! I JUST HOPE MY SURGURY DATE WONT BE A LONG TIME AWAY. I DONT KNOW HOW BOOKED UP THEY ARE.
april 21, 2001
well i go in on may 7 to talk to the sleep study people about my sleep. if everything goes ok i shoulld get a new surgury date. as of now i am just ready to quit.
may 9, 2001
it has been awhile since i have updated but my computer has been messed up. i am scheduled to go in on may 16 and get on a cpap machine and then in two weeks i should be able to go and have my surgury. i cant wait!!!
JULY 13, 2001
I HAVE MY SURGURY MONDAY!!! I AM SO NERVOUS. I WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW EVERYTHING GOES.
july 25, 2001
WELL I HAD MY SURGURY OVER A WEEK AGO. I CAN TELL I AM LOSING WEIGHT. I DONT FEEL ALL THAT GREAT YET. I FEEL LIGHT-HEADED. BURPING SEEMS TO BE MY WORST PROBLEM. I WOULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN IN A MINUTE.
JULY 29, 2001
WELL EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE GOING O.K. WE WENT OUT SCHOOL SHOPPING FOR MY NIECE AND THEY TOOK ME WITH THEM SO THAT I COULD WALK. IT WAS FINE FOR A WHILE AND THEN I GOT SICK. ITS NOT REALLY SICK. ITS GAS. GAS AS IN BURPING. I HAVE NEVER BURPED SO MUCH IN MY LIFE. BUT WHEN I GET TO BURPING IT MAKES ME FEEL ILL. I HOPE THIS PART GOES AWAY REAL SOON.
WEDNESDAY I GO BACK TO THE DOCTOR. I AM EXCITED TO SEE HOW MUCH I HAVE LOST. I THINK 20 BUT I WILL WRITE AND LET YOU KNOW IF I WAS RIGHT.
WHEN I USED TO GO TO THE STORES I WOULD LOOK FOR SOMEWHERE TO SIT DOWN OR I WOULD LEAN ON THE CART BECAUSE MY BACK WOULD HURT AND IT DONT ANYMORE. THAT IS MY ONE GOOD THING THAT HAS HAPPENED. ALSO MY FACE IS REALLY GOING DOWN. YEAH!!!!
AUG. 1, 2001
WELL I WENT TO THE DOCTOR FOR MY 2 WEEK CHECKUP TODAY. EVERYTHING IS GOING OK. I LOST 44 POUNDS!! I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT!! I THOUGHT I HAD LOST ABOUT 20 BUT NEVER DID I THINK 44. I HOPE I KEEPS GOING THAT QUICK!1 I KNOW THAT IT WONT. IT WILL START GOING ALOT SLOWER BUT THATS OK. THATS 44 POUNDS GONE NEVER TO COME BACK!!
aug. 9, 2001
well the other night i got really sick. it felt like my stomach was on fire. i woke up and felt like i had to trow-up and i did. it was awful. i started to throw-up blood. it scared me to death! i call btc and the nurse told me it sounded like it was acid reflux. i was to take some maalox. well at this time it was almost 3 in the morning and i had to call my sister because no one was around. i scared her to death because nobody calls at that time unless its something bad. well she went and got it for me. i took some and threw-up and then took some more. it was about 5 before it quite. i watch kids so i was real tired. the twins i watch are 14 so they helped out alot and let me sleep some. i still dont feel very good but i feel better than i did. my body is sore. i keep sneezing and its killing me. until then i was doing pretty good. i hope that never happens again.
well so far everything has been going ok. last nighti got acid reflux again but i took maalox before it got as bad as it did the last time. i think maybe i have lost another 20 pounds but as i said that before and had lost more. i hope i dont jinx myself. i have been having these energy bursts. last night i cleaned my bathroom. i have a huge bathroom and i mean i cleaned it. i scrubbed everything. it took me 3 hours. but i had to do something. its strange but i like it. i have been trying to ride my bike every night. i dident that night. my niece got my bike out of the shed and she has been riding with me. we go a little further each time. my bike is a 3 wheeler. so when we go i put my daughter jaleesa in the back basket and she goes with me. she loves riding with us. the only thing is it makes it a little harder because of the added weight. but hopefully thaT will just make me stronger. i can really tell my fingers are getting smaller. my rings are sliding around now. that makes me feel good. i put on a shirt today that i got at the beginning of summer and i wore it once and it shrank so i never put it back on. i wore it today and it fit fine. so i guess that means that my stomach is going down. well i will update after i go to the doctor sept. 5.
AUG. 29 2001
WELL I SAID I WOULDNT WRITE UNTIL I GO BACK BUT I AM. EVERYTHING IS FINE. I AM GETTING MORE ENERGY BURSTS NOW. I FEEL ALOT BETTER. MORE ENERGIZED AND LIGHTER. MY LEGS ARE SLIMMING DOWN. THERE IS NOT AS MUCH FRICTION NOW!! MY ARMS FEEL AS THEY HAVE WENT DOWN TO. WITH ALL THIS ENERGY NOW I AM SO TIRED AT NIGHT. WHEN IT IS TIME TO GO TO BED I AM READY. IT USED TO TAKE ME A WHILE TO FALL ASLEEP. NOT NOW. I AM CONSTANTLY MOVING. ITS GREAT.
SEPT. 6, 2001
YESTERDAY I HAD MY 6-WEEK CHECK-UP AND I HAVE LOST 18 POUNDS. THATS 62 POUNDS IN 6 WEEKS!! I AM VERY HAPPY. THEY SAID I NEED TO GET MORE PROTEIN. EVERYTHING ELSE IS FINE. DR. CHOBAN IS A VERY GOOD DOCTOR. I COULD NEVER SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT HER. SHE HAS BEEN GREAT.
YESTERDAY I HAD MY 3- MONTH CHECK-UP AND I AM DOWN 83 POUND!! I HAD LOST 21 SINCE MY LAST VISIT!! I WAS SO HAPPY. I AM LOSING ALOT OF HAIR BUT ITS BECAUSE I AM NOT GETTING ENOUGH PROTIEN. WHEN I GOT BACK LAST NIGHT I HAD TO GO TO GNC AND GET SOME PROTIEN DRINKS AND PROTIEN BARS. I HAD ONR THIS MORNING AND THEY ARE KIND OF GROSS!! BUT I HAVE TO DO IT. ITS LIKE THEY WANT ME TO EAT MORE BUT I CANT. I FEEL STUFFED ALL OF THE TIME. IF I EAT ANYMORE I FEEL SICK. I GUESS I WILL HAVE TO FORSE MYSELF.
Nov. 8, 2001
Well my hair has quite falling out as bad as it was. I still dont think that I am getting enough protien but the drinks are gross. I think I may have lost 10 pounds or so since i went in. rings are getting to big, clothes are getting to big. I couldnt be happier. I have been getting a little more protien because i have been eating jenny craig food and it has alot in it. i had alot of food left from when i was on the diet. i remember eating them bfore and would not be full now i am stuffed. im ready to hit my 100 pound mark.
NOV. 14, 2001
TODAY I AM READY TO PULL MY HAIR OUT!!! I WATCH KIDS FOR A LIVING AND THESE KIDS THAT I WATCH ARE BEING AWFUL!!! THEY ARE BREAKING ALL OF MY TOYS THAT ARE HERE AND WHEN I TELL THE PARENTS THEY JUST LAUGH AND THINK I AM JOKING. IM NOT!! I CANT GO OUT AND BUY TOYS ALL OF THE TIME. THEY HAVE BROKE OVER 400 DOLLARS WORTH IN 3 MONTHS. THEY TAKE THEM AND THROW THEM AND PULL THEM TILL THEY BREAK!! THESE PARENTS NEED TO START TAKING ME SERIOUSLY!! NOBODY IS PAYING ME ON TIME. ITS ALWAYS CAN I PAY YOU NEXT WEEK OR I FORGOT IT. WHAT AM I SUSPOSD TO SAY NO! THIS IS MY LIVING AND I KNOW IF THEY WENT TO GET THEIR PAY CHECK AND THE PRSON SAID OOPS I FORGOT IT OR CAN I GIVE IT TO YOU NEXT WEEK THEY WOULD BE PISSED. WITH ALL OF THIS STRESS I CANT EVEN EAT. I AM ALWAYS SICK TO MY STOMACH AND I DONT WANT TO. MY HAIR IS STILL FALLING OUT. IM GOING TO BE BALD BEFORE IT QUITS!!
well today i feel much better. i got up this morning and got a shower before the kids got here and when i got dressed the pair of pants i wore only two weeks ago were way to big!! i was so happy. alot of my pants are getting big. the crotch hangs almost to my knees. its getting to be time to buy a couple of more pairs. shopping is so depressing though. i see all of this stuff that i can wear but its stupid to buy them because i may not be able to wear them in a few weeks.
nov. 20, 2001
well im ready for thanksgiving. these holidays are really going to be a test of self control. food is just always around. we dont talk about what we are going to do we talk about what we are going to eat. but i really dont think it will bother me. at least i hope it dont. i am still losing hair but not as bad. i have been increasing my protien some. im still not getting it all in. i am still finding clothes that i havent wore in years and they fit!! i have been taking tags off of the clothes. i am so glad that i kept them. you know how you save clothes because you say i will lose weight and wear that some day. that day took 5 years!! but at least that day came.

I AM NOT SURE BECAUSE I HAVE NOT WEIGHED MYSELF. BEFORE I HAD THIS SURGURY I WOULD GO SHOPPING AT FASHION BUG AND I WOULD BUY THE SIZE 30/32. IT WAS THE LARGEST THEY HAD. SOMETHIMES IT WAS TO SMALL. LAST NIGHT I WENT THERE TO GET SOME SHORTS BECAUSE MINE ARE WAY TO BIG. I CANT BELIVE I WEAR A SIZE 18!! THAT IS STILL A LARGE SIZE BUT TO ME THAT IS SO CLOSE TO A "NORMAL" SIZE.

FEBRUARY 4, 2003
WELL I GUESS I SHOULD SAY HAPPY NEW YEAR. I JUST GOT OVER BEING SICK BUT IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SURGURY. EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THE KIDS I WATCH. SOME PARENTS JUST DONT KNOW WHEN TO KEEP THEIR KIDS AT HOME! OH WELL. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN FINE. I THINK THAT I AM ABOUT 180-185 DOWN BUT I HAVE NOT WEIGHED. I HAVE BEEN GETTING DIZZY ALOT. I DONT KNOW IF THAT IS FROM THE SURGURY OR WHAT. IT IS A LITTLE SCARY. ITS LIKE I HAVE TO FIGHT TO STAY ALERT. I HAD A BALL AT THE PAGEANT! I DIDNT WIN! IT ENDED UP BEING SO MUCH STRESS AT THE END I DIDENT WANT TO!. IT WAS FUN AND I PLAN ON DOING IT THIS YEAR IF I AM STILL PLUS SIZE. I MESSED UP MY INTERVEIW. THAT IS MOST OF YOUR SCORE.

JULY 14, 2003
SORRY I HAVENT KEPT THIS UPDATED. MY TUMMY TUCK WENT FINE. THEY TOOK OFF 6 POUNDS. DOSENT SOUND LIKE ALOT BUT WHEN YOU TAKE 6 TUBS OF BUTTER AND PUT THAT TOGETHER THAT IS THE AMOUNT THAT IS GONE FROM MY STOMACH!!. I PUSHED MYSELF WAY TO FAST. I GOT AN INFECTION IN MY DRAIN TUBES SO I HAD THOSE IN FOR ALMOST A MONTH. I WAS SICK FOR ABOUT 3 WEEKS. IN THAT TIME I LOST ANOTHER 10 POUNDS. I AM STILL LEAKING FROM MY INCISION BUT I DONT THINK IT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF I HAD NOT PUSHED SO FAST. I WENT TO FLORIDA 3 WEEKS AFTER SURGURY AND TOOK MY GIRL SCOUT TROOP TO DISNEY FOR A WEEK. BEFORE THAT WE WERE FUNDRAISING. I ONLY GAVE MYSELF A FEW DAYS TO RECOVER. THEN I CAME BACK FOR A WEEK AND WATCHED KIDS. THEN I WENT ON MY 2 WEEK VACATION. IN THAT TIME I WENT SWIMMING TO THE FAIR AND ALL KINDS OF FUN SUMMER THINGS. I WOULD STILL DO IT AGAIN I LOOK SO MUCH BETTER AND NOW I FEEL BETTER. I AM IN A SMALLER SIZE AND HAVE TO BUY MORE BUT OH WELL!!! NEXT THING I WANT TO GET RID OF IS MY BAT WING ARMS!! WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW THAT GOES.

Surgeon: Patricia S. Choban, M.D., F.A.C.S.
july 20, 2001 the day i came
SHE WAS NICE AND VERY INFORMATIVE. SHE IS VERY MUCH TO THE POINT. SHE DOES NOT BEAT AROUND THE BUSH. I LIKED HER BUT I DIDENT LIKE HER. THE ONLY REASON I DID NOT LIKE HER WAS BECAUSE SHE TOLD ME I HAD TO QUIT SMOKING OR SHE WOULDNT DO THE SURGERY. AT THE TIME I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO HAVE TOLD HER TO SCREW OFF BUT I HAVE NOT SMOKED IN SIX MONTHS AND I FEEL ALOT BETTER AND I THANK HER FOR IT.
