    Hi Everyone!
    I am still waiting to hear if I am approved for surgery. I feel like it is taking forever lol. The reason I want the surgery is that my knees hurt so bad from the extra weight, my back can not handle simple tasks. I miss being active with my kids, like playing volleyball and basketball. I want to ride my bike! I have tried every diet out there and have worked with my doctor for years. My sleep apnea is getting worse and I have heartburn all the time now.

    If you could give me any advice, what would it be?

    Hi There,

    I would say be very patience and once approved for the surgery follow all of the directions to a T. Don't try any shortcuts and be prepared for a new life. It is an amazing feeling to watch the pounds just slip off of you but you will need to work too. I would suggest making sure you do all your research and go to any information seminars your Drs offer. I might have an ulcer and my Dr informed me this is not uncommon. He said it may have developed along the staple line after my gastric surgery. I never recall hearing about this before my surgery. Just make sure you know what to expect.
