11/25/2006 - My surgery date is less than a week away and I am excited and nervous. I have been struggling with my weight all my life and it seems like after I had my son 9 years ago, the weight would not budge. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol and many other co-morbidities that run in my family (diabetes, kidney disease) so I want the weight off for good, so I can be healthy. I saw Dr. Fullum on the 16th for my final pre-op appointment and I weighed in at 261. I have done my grocery shopping and I am ready for Dec. 1st to get here!
