Let’s start back in 2014 when I went through 6 months of approvals and weight loss and when I got my clearance and approval from my insurance I chickened out only to hit my highest weight a year later. My turning point was when my A1C hit 5.9 and I decided I never wanted to live with Diabetes. I have friends and relatives who had body parts removed and I did not want that for my later years in life. I love to travel and I saw that all going away if I did not do something and do it soon. I am 53 years old and I had my surgery in December of 2017 I went in on December 11,2017 for a VSG and left the hospital on December 22nd with a RNY not my plan but it must have been gods. Fast forward to today March 15 and I am doing much better. I have good eating days and bad ones. I think food comes up on me more than the regular wls patient but I’m learning to live with it. And I remind myself I’m alive and loosing weight. Let’s see where the rest of my journey take me.
