Hi I am just dropping in to say hello. After reading almost every post on this site, watching You Tube and chatting to banded and sleeved friends I have decided that I am going to have this operation 'for me'..I have had two other 'for me' surgeries in my life, one being a breast reduction 20 years ago and the other a full hysterectomy 3 years ago. Both were life changing and I hope
this final surgery will end my lifelong struggle with being overweight and give me my zest for life back. I went to the Doctor last week and chickened out asking for a referral, got some great blood tests done though..lol..Tuesday I am back to the Doc. for results so I am putting my big girl panties on (literally) and asking for one. So fingers crossed Tuesday afternoon I have my appointment booked with the surgeon for a first consult. Thanks everyone for sharing your journies.
