    Default Tomorrow is the big day

    I want to introduce myself. My name is Wendy Billings I am 45 and I have struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. The weight has steadily increased over the past 30 years and 4 pregnancies. Recently my weight reached an all time high of 315. Many failed attempts at trying to lose on my own, the time had come to do something different. Over the last few years I have contemplated weight loss surgery, but never got close to doing it. Through the encouragement of my aunt, who had duodenal switch 16 years ago, I finally found a a surgeon Now that all hoops have been jumped through I will be going in for surgery tomorrow March 11. I am so ready for this change.

    Good luck! My surgery is the 27th and I’m getting anxious as the days go by because it will finally be here after such a long wait. Let us know how you’re doing post-surgery.

    So happy for you! Follow all instructions and you'll do great. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Be sure to sleep a lot that first week. When you're not sleeping you'll be sipping (continually) and walking a little.

    Thank you everyone for your support. The surgery went well. I ended up staying the night in the hospital because my surgery was so late in the day. The ride home is 4 1/2 hours on a normal day so glad that part is over. Now fluids, fluids and some rest.
