I am excited about surgery (2/28/17) and glad to have found this site to learn from folks and to share my joys and struggles.
I've been thinking about RNY for more than 5 years but it just was never the right time. Finally, my diabetes, asthma and general fitness got to the point that I couldn't deal with them any more. I decided that it was time to do something serious, not just another diet, to help my health. Also I am only a few months away from the BIG 5-0 and I want to be able to be healthy for years to come.
I also am glad to have several friends who have had the surgery, one just in August, who have answered questions and been encouraging. It just was the right time and I look forward to the new life.
