So…I started this journey in July. I hit the ground running and knocked out all of the requirements as quickly as I could. The testing, the appointments, the support groups.
I did a lot of research. I found some sites that were helpful and started following those sites -getting more information.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the support group. It turns out it will be as helpful as I let it…there is good info and bad…like anywhere. But it was there, I heard more than one person explain why they chose the surgery they chose – sleeve or bypass. Until that day, I was pretty sure I wanted the sleeve. Research and the experiences of others have led me to aim for the bypass. Because of c-sections, it may not happen, but that’s my goal.
Surgery is 5 November 2018. I started the liver-shrinking diet on the 22nd. I have one more pre-op appointment and then it’s show time.
Thanks for joining me on my journey. Because I haven’t shared with many people, yet, I haven’t put the blog out too many places – but I will.
