Hi my name is Monette I'm 34yrs old and I would like to introduce myself to the WLS community. I have always had issues with my weight. I had tried every diet that I knew of and every diet pill that I could find. I have PCOS and Hyperthyroidism which is very difficult to lose weight. I ended up with high [color="#000000"]cholesterol[/color] and swollen ankles because of all of the extra weight. I finally made the decision to do something about it. I'm going to have the Gastric Sleeve on June 5, 2012. I first thought about getting the lapband, but later decided vertical sleeve was a better choice for me.
