Hello everyone!!!!

I am currently 10 weeks post-op and wanted to introduce myself......

I'm Liz, I'm married and have three kids under the age of 5. Phew what a handful, but I love them dearly. My husband is in the military and I am currently a SAHM. I am planning on attending graduate school for the Spring 2004 semester. Fingers crossed.

Send me a message, I'd love to hear from you.

Hi Liz, I'm with Jiff.......spill.......we want to know more.

and Jiff, I think St Marys is close to Savannah, not close to Hazel and I at all. Liz, Hazel and I are in the burbs of Atlanta.

Ok, ok...you talked me into it. I had surgery in Brunswick, GA with Dr. Hederson on 4/21/2003. Dr. H only does Lap or open proximal and my insurance only paid for open - so there was no choice.

The heaviest weight I have ever been is 262 by my scale. At my initial consult I weighed 255 on the docs scale. I had a minor complication a few days after surgery. Possibly inflammation from a fluid collection - my diaphragm went into spasm and I had terribel pain. But two days in the hospital with oral antibiotics left me feeling better.

This has been a struggle for me but I've done it happily. I am losing weight I never thought I would. It's definitely been a learning process.

Ok, I'm exhausted :moo: I would be happy to go on and one but it's easier with specific questions. Thanks so much for popping in and saying hello. Here's to the losing side! :flow1:
