S/C/G: 297/137/150


I ended up with a neurological disorder as a result of my gastric bypass surgery and I was following my instructions. After my disorder was diagnosed I tried to research it fully. It's most common cause is alcoholism. I wasn't drinking at all especially only 4 weeks after surgery. After speaking with my doctor I found out that there was only ever one case of my disease in reference to the Gastric Bypass every reported in my state and less than 100 in all of the United States. Usually people end up in a coma or dead before the diagnosis could happen. I was lucky that I just happened to go to the hospital where that one other case was recently studied. Every person is different and surgeries effect every person in a different way.
Long Term Goal

Starting Weight 1/1/06: 297 lbs.
Weight on Surgery Day 9/5/06: 249 lbs.
Current Weight 10/04/08: 142lbs.
