Before my WLS my labs showed I had low Testosterone. My PCP doctor wanted to start me on a steroid therapy plan. I decided to wait till after I had WLS to start steroid therapy. Well I went back to my PCP to get things started again. She tells me there's no need for steroids cause my lab work show that my testosterone levels are NORMAL
. Who would have know that being Super Obese would cause low testosterone levels.

I have 2 boys a 4 year old and a 1 1/2 year old. My oldest has Autism. This was the main reason for me to have WLS. He needs his daddy to help him with his struggles in life. Here's a tribute video on my son
6 months out
Aug 15, 2008
Well it's been 6 months since Dr. Coirin cut up the ol Gizzards (RNY) I'm down 115 lbs and feel great. My hair is really falling out now. It doen't bother me too much cause I'm a guy. 88 more lbs to go and I'll be at my goal weight. This summer I fit in the roller coasters at DisneyLand that was my biggest FART(guys WOW moment) moment. Man that really felt great. I've gone from a size 58 waist down to a 44. The weight loss has slowed down a little. Now I really have to fight for every pound l loose. Everyone at work has complimented me on my weightloss and it's feels great when they do. I have a lot of support from my family and friends and I wouldn't be where I'm at with out them. RNY has been one the best decisions I have made in my life, and anyone thinking it's the easy way out let me tell ya it isn't. If your looking into this surgery please do your research on it before you make that decision. Once it's done it's done. As for me I love my RNY tool I was given. I have to give major props to Dr. Coirin of Modesto as he is "THE MAN" when it comes to RNY.

Well I hit the century mark. I'm half way to my goal weight. Today I also had my 3 month doc visit. Labs were good PA Diane wants me to loose 30 lbs by my next 3 month visit that should be a piece of cake. I lost 10 pant sizes so far. So far no regrets this RNY deal is awsome
Almost 2 months out now in twoserville

Well I finally left the 300's. In less than 2 months I lost 76lbs. I now started working out twice a day at the gym on my days off. I work a compressed work week so it's really hard to work out during that time. I just make up for it on my days off. I dropped 8 sizes in my pants. I had some Co-workers asked how I'm loosing weight so fast. I just smile and say I watch what I eat.

Well remeber when they tell you chew chew chew and chew and take your time to eat. Well I experienced waht happens if you don't. I offically got my first blockage and that was no fun. After alomst 12 hours of not being able to pass the blockage I made myself throw up. I also took some Papaya Enzyimes to help pass the blockage. The blockage is now gone. That was some scary shit. So remember to CHEW CHEW CHEW CHEW and CHEW some more.
Out of Hopspital

Well everything went great. I had to have 7 inscions do to my diamphram being in the way. I got a little nausiated from the Morphine. So i was glad when I was off of that. Dr. Coirin and the hospital staff were AWSOME. I can't believe the hunger pains are gone. I did gain 10 lbs in the hospital due to all the IV liquid they gave me, so I guess I was dehydrated. So I have to keep up on my liquids. So far everything is texbook so I am real happy:)

Well everything is set to go. Surgery is 12 noon tomarrow. The main reason for me having this surgery is for my Family. My two boys need there Daddy to raise them without being overweight or dead. My wife needs a husband that can provide for her. I have tried many diets before but all have failed. My most successful diet was Atkins where I lost 95lbs.
