All the best for your journey!! I know what its like with PCOS I have had it since I was 14 and it sucks..I also found out durng my pre-op testing that I have an enlarged sleen but after running some tests they couldnt find anything wrong with me so they just chalk it up to my size. Well no matter which path you take I wish you nothing but the best!!

Hi Tricia
Well, you certainly have learned an awful lot about your body and I can imagine that it really gave you a lot to think about. At least you now have a better idea of how the PCOS contributed to your weight gain.  I'm glad to hear that you are going to continue to stay on your quest to be as healthy as you can and I'm also glad that you are going to see a new doctor. Take good care of yourself and pop in to let us know how you are making out, okay? Best of luck to you Tricia!
