I am from NE Philly
I am 54 y.o from NE Philly, I am married to a wonderful man Norm who is my soulmate,I have a great daughter Zahra who is 27 y.o and married she lives in the house next door and most of all I have 4 sweet spoiled & rotten Chihuahua's.
well I decided to think about having this surgery last month, I have diabetes ,HTN & CAD. I am 5 ft 4 inches and am 249lbs. I mainly need to do this to get my diabetes under control,I have been told that I could come off a lot of my medicine and that is my goal to loose weight so I can get off all of this medicine.
I am going to the Barix Clininc in Langhorne PA that is all they do is WLS, I want to get a lap RNY,I need a sleep study they say I need it but they can't schedule me for another month, I had my stress test and I am cleared by my cardiologist. I run a party store in Bensalem so now we are getting very busy so I can't have anything done until june if not done by July then have to wait until 2nd week in August.
I have been going to the support group meetings for pre-op & post-op and I really enjoy them the people are nice and no one judges you.post-op meetings are great because they have been through this and can tell you what you can expect
