Long story...I did weight watchers for nine months and then decided to do surgery. I went through three appeals to get my insurance to approve Weight Watchers, and in that time I almost gave up, thought about having surgery in Mexico about ten times!

I have to get an endoscopy and get a negative nicotine test and then do the nurse education thing.

Hi Theresa! Do you guys go to the support group?

So funny story. First time I went in there was a woman in the waiting room with me, we started talking and she said she was having a revision.

I told her I had started at Des Peres but I hated it and she said "well this is Des Peres." I just looked at her and thought "wait what???"

And then I said "no this is DePaul!" And she said "oh yeah. Well I have ADHD too." Lol

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
