    Default Starting out

    Hi. I am Going through the process of pre surgery so I am new to the forum. I did five months of visiting my doctor then changed my mind about surgery. Got scared. Now Iím back with a nutritionist and on the six month cycle again. Maybe surgery at the end of the year. I do have plenty of questions so I wanted to say hello. My weight apparently is on the lower side of the scale for sleeve surgery but I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol so Iím trying to improve both as well as get my weight down. Unfortunately for me I used to be skinny but hit menopause and everything changed. Anyone else in that boat?

    Welcome Ninja. Hopefully you get through your pre op insurance requirements this time. I can say it is the best thing I have ever done. Ultimately, only you can decide if this is right for you.

    Good luck. This isn't an easy decision to make and it's not an easy process. It can be helpful but you are the only one who knows what's best for you
