Hi 👋 Spark ⚡️ Friends - I had thought I was going to have Bariatric surgery. Specifically, gastric sleeve surgery. Elective surgery pushed this off from Monday, June 8, 2020 at 7 am to Monday, September 7, 2020 or later. Despite Convirus-19, I did get fairly quick medical attention because I possibly had cervical cancer. Turns out I do not but have physically gained weight - due to excessive stress, medications, limited ability to exercising after outpatient surgery due to bleeding from my groin area, etc.
Respectfully, after telling me I now needed 3 or more minor outpatient surgery (throat, cardiac and lungs) tests to get clearance for future Bariatric surgery- I finally made the hard decision to NOT have Bariatric surgery now. I have plenty of good examples here plus the support of a great persons -like you, Bea and many more.
Thanks for letting me share with you my choice without judgement or recriminations. My family is very disappointed & vocally upset 😡 with my decision. Have yet to explain this to them in person - so I am slugging through this. I ask you for prayers support and words of affirmation/support.
