I had surgery for kidney stones and they damaged the nerves in my legs.  After that surgery they put me on all kinds of pain medication and other types of drugs and I started top put on weight.  I have had a battle with my weight the last 10 years of my life, but nothing that I could not over come.  This time I am having a real difficult time with everything and my legs are not helping me with the issue.  I don't do as much as I use to with my leg pain and I stopped going to the gym because exercise hurt my legs to much.  I have lost 45 pounds in the last six months under my doctors care, I have not taken any type of drugs to help me loose weight just been dieting.  My legs have not gotten any better and the weight that is causing part of the issue is all in my mid section of my body.  I have lost weight every where but there.  My surgery is scheduled for July 29, 2010
