February 5th 2018 Surgery Date



Recommended Posts

Wow, 16 months after having a MERSA infection cut out of my foot that nearly resulted in the amputation on 2 toes my surgery date was scheduled. I think about everything that I've gone through in that time, the wound vac, weeks of IV antibiotics, not being able to get out of bed, the three months of healing, being away from my wife & kids while I re-cooperated at my parents because we live in a second floor apartment, getting my A1C from a 15.5, yes a 15.5 to a 7 and the three months of pre surgery classes I can't believe I'm actually here. It really is a surreal feeling, I've been overweight my entire life, I don't ever remember NOT being the fattest guy in class or a room, sure there were the occasional guys that made me feel thinner but they were few and far between, what the hell am I going to look like? There have always been two things that have been part of my identity, one, you know the big guy and two, don't worry Bobby'll finish it. I hate the word "Journey" but it really has been and now it's time for another fork in the road and for the first time I really don't feel afraid of the change, it's time. Thanks to all of you out there....

sounds like quite a struggle you've been thru lately.

after your WLS, i think you'll find life being much, much easier in almost every way.
