So this is my second attempt at Weight Loss Surgery, I went for the band in 2011, and insurance denied me the night before my surgery!! BMI was 38.9 and no comorbidities. I had given up and gotten comfortable with my 255lbs frame. I am 5' 10" so it was easy to hide the weight in cute clothes sized 18/20. In October I experienced vision loss, due to optic neuritis, and one of the suspected causes was my obesity. as with any inflammation i was on a steroid for four days and in three months, the consequences of that regimen was 22 lbs. So now 25 at 285, I decided to give it another try. I went stir crazy with the thought of having to wear larger clothes, and i have just become a little uncomfortable.Walking has become harder, breathing, and other physical activity. Anyway, I saw Dr. Abkin, and we agreed it was best to have the sleeve. Surgery was scheduled  for June 24.
