Initially, I started this journey in 2007. Went through 5 of the 6 classes in insurance required and right before class 7, realized that I wasn't ready for this.
Fast forward to March 2010. Decided that I was ready. Nut provided my stats over the past few months. In November 2009, I weighed 279. In March 2010, I weighed 254.
Had my first visit with the surgeon in February 2011. My weight was 244. My last visit prior to surgery was in early May 2011. I gained 3 pounds and weighed in at 247.
The night before surgery, I weighed 232. From November 2009 to May 23, 2010, I lost 47 lbs.
Had surgery on 05/24/2011. Other than BP issues, surgery was a breeze. To date, have not had any issues with food.
Did develop a bladder infection. I am sure that I added to it by not drinking enough fluids. But, I am working on that.
