I'm 25 and I have been overweight and obese since I was 12. I hit puberty and BAM!!! On came the fat. I have tried everything under the sun and I wanted Bariatric surgery to be my last and final alternative. At the age of 16 I was diagnosed with PCOS and told I would never be able to have kids. At 22 they put me on glucophage to control my blood suger, at 23 they put me on blood pressure medicine and a very STRICT diet. I had found an endocrinologist, Dawn Ayers in Noblesville, that said she could get me pregnant if I lost 50 lbs. This strict diet let me lose 47 lbs and a year a half later after I had kept that much off and three rounds of clomid, I did get pregnant but it ended up being a tubal and I had to have emergency surgery to remove the fetus. I have since gained back all my weight and then some, and I'm not back up to 290... I'm back on my blood pressure medicine, and I feel like shit. I decided I was going to try for the bariatric surgery in August and I"ve been working towards it since. I currently have an appeal in and I should hear something back in the end of November about my surgery. Please everyone pray for me. This determines how the rest of my life will go.
