Hi. Well, i am excited about my possibilities of having WLS. I've been here a couple times in the past and have looked into the band mainly, but as I'm in Germany now as a military wife, i've been told over and over the band isn't covered.
I met with PCP this past week, and he's filling out all needed paperwork to send to Tricare so i can get approval to meet with a surgeon about my weight loss surgery options ( this is good news..thus far).
Anyway, i had at first thought i didn't have the guts to go through with the gastric bypass,mainly for fear of dying....but since it may be my only option I'm becomging open to it a little more and wanting to learn more...
29 yo female
happily married 2 1/2 yrs
I have a 2 mth old little girl
As my husband will be in Iraq, I need to know realistically, how long POST surgery, i would need help caring for my little girl. I've got very close friends willing to help, have her stay with them, and possibly my mother n law coming over to help as well, but i need to know how long i will need help 1) for my daughter and 2) help with myself?
ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!!
