I have two adult daughters. Due to covid my surgery has been pushed back several months. I was hoping to have it in Jan. 2021. I originally was going with my doctors recommendation of bypass/RNY but due to my daughters wedding date in Aug and Bypass not being able to happen until July my surgeon and I have changed to VSG instead and hoping I dont have an issue with GERD/REflux. I started gaining weight in my late 30's early 40's. The more I gained the worse I felt. I am hoping to ease some of  this joint/back/knee pain, get off blood pressure medications. I  want to be healthy again and live a healthy life. My oldest daughter and has two girls ages 11, and 14. My youngest gets married in August and they want to start a family right away. (been together for 13 years) They are high school sweethearts. I will be the child care provider for her children and will need energy to keep up!
