I usually chill in the 300+ support group but figured I would drop a thread in over here.
I am Canadian (in Ontario specifically) and am going through the motions of our OHIP funded surgery...
Reality is the common option is RNY, followed by VSG, and DS (DS requires a fair amount of paperwork and only 1 Dr does it)...
I shall be a VSGer. I have a Tylenol allergy and this suits me best as life without NSAIDS would be brutal.
I see the SW, RN and Dietitian Thursday of this week... Have met my Surgeon and done the Orientation already.
Anyway... hope you all have a lovely week!
Starting over... If at first you succeed a bit then get sick... Get yourself better and start again darn it! AND AGAIN!
Ok! Straight up... First time through... I lost and then got sick and gained more than I had lost. Second time through I lost, got where I needed to... Enjoyed it. Took prednizone (oh lordy how I hate it) and was creeping back toward my worst.
So let's do this (C is stopping point apparently):
1st: S/C/G: 334/280/200 - 2007-2008
2nd: S/C/G: 369/291.2/200 - 2009-2010
