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.
