2 Questions. ..
Dec 28, 2016
1. When I attended a weightloss surgery seminar at Alvarado Hospital earlier this year, Dr. Ellner stated that with sleeve surgery, a leak can occur at anytime during your life after surgery. I was under the impression that this was possible only up to a certain time after surgery and once it healed, it would no longer be a risk. I had never heard this and am wondering if anyone here has also been told this or knows anything about it?
2 Also, with the sleeve, what happens if a person develops stomach cancer and there isn't enough stomach to cut away?
I have also posted this on the sleeve forum.
the worst pain
Feb 20, 2016
Today was a very rough day. I wanted a doughnut, some ice cream, chips, just anything to take the pain away. Instead, I got in my car, had a good cry, and decided to drive. Yes, drive. Aimlessly. Thoughtlessly. Somehow I ended up at a dead end road with a trail which led to a steep hill. Some folks were walking their dogs. Before I had a chance to come up with excuses, I parked the car, got out, and proceeded to put one front in front of the other and walk that trail right up to that steep hill. I sweated. I huffed and puffed. I hurt. A lot. But that pain was nothing compared to the emotional turmoil I was experinecing. Darkness fell, and I hated it, because that meant it was time to stop. I'm home now. Still hurting, but hoping to wake up tomorrow feeling better. Of course, my body will be sore as hell. Grateful to have a place to get this all out. #FamilyDrama
