[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]My name is Sandy and i'm 35yrs old. A mother of two 16 and 11, I've been struggle with my weight since my son was 3yrs old. I've tried everything under the sun including weight watchers where in 98_99 I was able to lose 75lbs. That I later gained back as soon as I became pregnant with my second. I was recently diagnosed with Lupus, Sjogrens, Anemia, Fibromyalgia and many more crap.. I'm on many medications that have contribute to my weight staying or going up from 242 _ 255.. I've research the sleeve and I finally made the decision to meet with a surgen. He agreed that the sleeve was the best option because of my Anemia so if you have medicare the sleeve will be covered if you can prove that it is more beneficial than the gastric bypass.. You're surgen should be able to fight for you, I know mines is fighting.. Had my initial consultation on May 18th and that same day started my pre_op testing.. I'm really looking forward to regaining control of my life and health..[/font][/color]
