Hi there! I haven't had the surgery, but have looked into it.
There have been lots of people on this forum who have had secondary issues just like yours. And people who have had revision surgeries, too.
I'm glad you joined this forum. You can surf ALL of the threads, because there is LOTS of great info out there from all types of people -- sort out what helps and chuck the rest!!!
I've followed Ms Mug's posts, and she is really great on the forum. And I'll sure you'll be great too. We all learn from each other, so don't be shy! Your opinions are valid and your experiences are valuable to us as a community. Don't be shy to ask for help, either, and pm whomEVER you like for help.
Welcome, and I KNOW that focussing on your health will get you in the best. shape. possible. for the rest of your life. You have to walk before you can run, no? So getting in the best health that you can will prepare you for the journey of life.
Weight is just a number, after all, and you can work on getting it down over time. But put yourself in the BEST position to do this. After all, who wants to be at an ideal weight but not able to do anything???
You CAN do this...
