hey mousey i know kidney stones can be a pain, i have had them 3 times and it aint no fun for sure, my wife had gastric bypass a few years back and had lost 150 lbs and is doing great, losing weight does do wonders for the body, have you considered the banding instead of bypass ive had friends who had the banding and did just as well, also with the banding you can still have sugar where with the bypass you have to avoid it and anything containing a lot of it, any ways whatever you decide should help the diabetes get under control and maybe you could drop some of those meds also, anyways good luck with whatever you decide and us here will be here for you.

Thanks surf. I've gone to those seminars that explain the 3 different surgery options. I'm glad your wife had good results.

Years ago, before I was diabetic, I used to sit back and think how nice it would be to be thinner. To shop in the Misses section instead of plus sizes. But it's not about that anymore. I'm kind of sad that I think about surgery for other reasons, for health reasons. And that I'm going to have it done so I can be healthier, not look better. You have to qualify for surgery, and I'm sad that I do.

It's hard to do, but I try to look to the future and think about the positive changes that are going to happen. And I pray it all goes smoothly. But there's always that nagging voice in the back of my head, telling me the social worker will never consider me stable enough to have it. Or that things will go wrong if I go through with it.

Hey Mousey!

I'm sorry to read about your health complications due to diabetes and weight. Both gout and kidney stones are often helped/prevented with taking apple cider vinegar, which helps prevent them from forming and (I think) dissolves the ones you have over time. Consistently taking it as a daily drink or daily additive to your diet is a big help in not suffering from gout.

The first link I attached is not worded smoothly for an English language speaker but it has good information about ways to take the apple cider vinegar.
The second is more educational for the condition. I hope things have improved since you last wrote!
