About Me

Apr 01, 2009

Okay so this is my 1st blog. I am pretty talkative so this is the start of many things to come! I am taking part in a clinical trial-Lord Willing on May 19, 2009. The day before my 28th birthday. I am having Gastric Restriction using the Endosurgical Operating System. It is called the POSE procedure. Primary Obesity Surgery Endoscopically. They are doing it going down the throat without any external incisions. I am nervous about being one of only 100 people in the nation to have this procedure but if I can help others in the future to be able to have WLS without the complications of external wounds it is worth it. Not to mention my own life long struggle with weight and wanting to change my life so I can be healthy and be around for many years to come. I am new here so it may take me time to get my page in order. 

I am looking to chat with people who have had WLS or are planning on having it. I am very excited about the support that this site offers and know support is key to long term success and it's always nice to have someone to talk to that understands aside from family/friends! 

I am scheduled for a barium swallow on April 8th at 9:00. As long as that is clear I will be getting things in order for the D.O.S. I have already completed the 26 pages of paperwork from the Dr and am praying that I don't have a secret ulcer or hernia that I didn't know about. That is the only thing standing btwn me and my surgery! Please feel free to give me tips or advice about the site and your own WLS story! :)
