Hope everyone is doing awesome!
I am so excited because I followed up with my surgeons office and I have been booked to meet Dr. Huynh for my 2nd visit on December 5/2012. So exciting because I get to book my surgery date!!!! YAY!!! The only thing that is a bit disappointing is the fact that they are all booked for December and January
So I hope that I can get in for early February.
I am just so anxious and I cannot wait anymore to start my journey!
Anyways all, I just wanted to share my exciting news!
The Waiting Game
Nov 15, 2012
So this is my first post, new to this whole OH community LOL!
Well I just wanted to give you a quick introduction of myself to you all.
I am 31 years old and married to the most wonderful and loving husband. We have been together for a total of 14 years and married for 5. We have two fur-babies who I absolutely adore! A pug name Ruby and a Boston Terrier named Abby.
Currently in the process of trying to get my RNY surgery. There a list of appointments that I must do before I am accepted and given my surgery date. I have met with my surgeon, internist, RN nurse, and next week I go to meet my dietician and nutritionist. Hoping that soon after I will meet my surgeon one more time and then hopefully I will get a surgery date!!!!
Since puberty I have suffered from being overweight. My mother passed away when I was 13 years of age and that put me through tremendous stress and heartache. I guess you could say I ate my way up all these years in order to cope with her loss. I was very close to my mother...she meant the world to me..she was my best friend.
I also suffer from PCOS and hence another reason for the weight gain. Suffer from depression and anxiety. Also suffer from GERD.
I am hoping that by having this surgery that I can begin to get my life back. I have missed out on so much. I have hidden away from family functions. I try not to go out to public places where there will be a lot of people because I am scared of all the stares that I will get. I am afraid that people will make fun of me and I am tired of being asked if I am pregnant!!
So if there is anyone out there that has gone through or is going through what I have please add me as a friend :) I would love to make some awesome friends on here!
I will keep you posted on my progress. Please everyone pray for me that I get a date soon! I am SO ready!!!
