About DesrtGal
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have not had a gastric sleeve.
After many years of unsuccessful dieting and failures, and feeling as the Yo-Yo Queen of dieting, my doctor suggested the gastric sleeve. I have RA, high bp, high sugar/A1c that's elevating at every lab testing over the past 2 years, sleep apnea and fibromyalgia, hypoglycemia and a few other gems I would rather lose forever! I have the appointment with a bariatric surgeon, have already been to my 1st nutrition class and now on their diet, and see the surgeon in January (after the seminar I must attend next week). I am scared, but hopeful. It's my last resort. I'd love to see my grandkids grow up. Our insurance company has been very helpful and I found a surgeon from our provider directory that my primary care doctor said has a good reputation. So I am feeling good about it all. Here's to a BRAND NEW year in 2017!
(When I signed up, I MEANT to write DesertGal but apparently my typing was too quick and hence, the name DesrtGal. Also, my surgery date is an estimation...seeing I was told by insurance it would be about 3 months to have it done.) Who knows... maybe March!
