I jumped thru several hoops and did MANY tests but had my Gastric Sleeve surgery on Sept 13th. Went well…am doing WONDERFUL. Pre surgery weight loss was 38 pounds. But with sugery and fluids used you gain some back but its all good because it is not about weight loss to me…I just wanna be healthy. Was in the hospital 4 days instead of 1…and off for 2 weeks instead of 1. But had to have my gallbladder removed as well. I only took pain meds the first day when they made me. As of right now I am no longer on blood pressure meds…was on 3!!!!! I am pretty much done with one insulin as I have not used it but maybe 3 times in a month and a half. I swim daily 9not right now of course) and excerise too. I eat right and my A1C right before surgery was 6.4 and was a result of all my hard work!!!!!!! I am soooooooooooo excited for my new adventure!!!!!

I got my done laperscopic…so just 6 small incisions. After a week no more high blood pressure. I feel awesome. It is so worth the hoops and hard work in my eyes…
