This is not intended to be negative or a pity
party.My hope and goal is to help
inspire others and bring awareness around gastric bypass before and after the
surgery.This was me just a few years
In March of 2011, I began my weight loss
journey.Almost one year to the day
later, I had gastric bypass surgery.It
was the best thing I’ve ever done.Today, almost 4 years later, I have lost just over 270lbs..My life has changed drastically.I have mobility and the doctors say I’ve
likely added 35 years to my life.
This is me in Sept 2014
In my personal circumstance, O.H.I. P. covered the
cost of the surgery.The down side is with
losing that much weight, I’m left with large amounts of excess skin all over my
body.To have it all removed is not
covered by O.H.I.P. I have spoken to a few Doctors and they are all saying the same...removing the excess skin is not covered. For those of us who can’t afford the very
costly surgery(s), what can be done?I know
I’m not alone here.
I am also asking for any help from anyone who has
information on affordable options for gastric bypass and skin removal.Please feel free to post or message me.I’m not alone here and I’m sure there are
others who are looking for answers as well.
