My story... Here it goes...I used to be super active, Downhill skiing, horseback riding you name it I did it... Then I got injured and had 5 knee surgeries in a 3 years span (I was basically on crutches for 3 years!) and that's when a chain of events occurred. With over compensation for years I blew my other knee out fell on my spine and now have herniated discs that have fissures on them.... needless to say it's really hard to get moving... I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Hypothyroid, PCOS, Severe sleep apnea (on a bipap) and Hypertension. My last straw was when I was hospitalized with Extremely high BP I was on stroke/heart attack watch for days.... and that scared the heck out of me! I have a Beautiful fun loving 6 yr old boy who needs his mama! I Just recently completed my classes for gastric bypass and attended one amazing support group session (more to come ) I am scheduled to have my first two appts in a week I am very excited and nervous to start this chapter in my life. ANY stories or info shared from anyone would be GREATLY appreciated!
