I'm learning my way around the website you don't know how long it took me to get here.
Anywho, I live on Oakland, Ca. and have been over weight all my life.
Just within the last couple of years my lower back has been bothering me and affecting my quality of life, which is my motivation for wanting to have surgery. As well as not wanting to be diagnosed with diabetes or have a heart attack, being I've been on HB Pressure MEDS for 10 plus years and High Cholesterol for the last 2 years.
I'm here looking for support as well as all the information I can get.
So here I am....
It would also be great if I could find someone in my area who could tell me about meetings if any around.
Peace and Blessings
