I've been going back and forth for years thinking i could get the weight off on my own. Been afraid to go under the knife but i guess this must be the right time. i started the WLS program with Memorial weight loss center in Springfield IL and it was sooo fast i was in shock. I always thought it would take months not the case. I have BCBS IL. They had 0 for me to do for approval. I had to do what Memorials program wanted and i was done in 2 months. I chose November so i can make sure i have someone to help me during my recovery. I'm happy for a new life but also Scared. I hope everyone that has had this done or getting it done all the best and speedy recovery. If any advice can be given for success and recovery i would appreciate it.
