WOULD I RECOMMEND BARRIATRIC SURGERY
Monday, June 30, 2014
Someone asked this question after I posted my picture, I'll try to answer that by telling my story.
Around the beginning of 2013, I found myself in a really bad situation. My weight was really out of control.. At 350 lbs. I found it very difficult to do much around the house, I had problems with my heart. I took enough meds that I rattled when I walked. I truly if I could eat properly. And get enough exercise I lose the weight. Problem was I could not stand long enough to make a healthy, I felt I could use a caregiver. Trouble was this was at a time SW was falling in a world of dementia. So at a time I felt needed a caregiver, I became one. during all this our house was getting messier and dirtier all along. I felt every thing was simply impossible.
I made up my mind I had to go after what ever help I could get. I found a neighbor to cut my grass. Began to take SW to a neologism. Made plans with my daughter to move to Virginia. with her. And signed up for my surgery.
Nov 4 I had my operation. I'm down 120 lbs. SW and have made the move Virginia. SW falling deeper into a pit of forgotten memory, but with my daughters help she's getting better care. My fall I'm hoping to have the house in Pa sold.
Would I recommend the surgery. I must admit it by it self is not so easy, You have a whole new life style to live with, The surgery wasn't the hard part. I still can't ear very much, I will get to a place I can eat pretty good, But that's still a long way off. Yet I do believe the hardest part was admitting I needed help. Since I decided that everything got better.
So if you can admit you need help. I'd say go for it,
I needed help.
