Album DescriptionOkay so honesty time…I didn’t want to admit before that I started at a little over 300 pounds..I didn’t weigh myself for at least two weeks before my duodenal switch (WLS) and I went through last supper syndrome BAD! Anyway it is now 3 and a half years later and I’ve been pretty steadily 120-125lbs so I’ve lost about 180 pounds total. Below are the surgeries I’ve had I know I’m missing something off this list..but as sad as it sounds I can’t remember what!
9/7/05 Open BPD/DS (WLS)
3-22-06 Very open adhesion removal.
2/2/07 Hernia repair and abdominoplasty.
6/1/07 brachioplasty, axilla excision, and breast augmentation.
9/14/07 mastopexy, muscle repair.
5/15/08 Adhesion removal, lap this time!!
6/25/08 Small bowel resection/revision of connections. Lap again! Thanks Dr. Enochs!
12/12/08 thigh skin excision
2/4/09 adhesion removal...again
I have Hidradenitis Suppurativa, a disease that has left me with deep scars and open, draining wounds on any part where skin touches skin. Because of the disease my insurance covered all of my surgeries with the exception of the implants for which I only paid parts..not labor. LOL! $1200 in case you’re wondering.
I am thrilled with my body. I wish I could afford a butt lift…or find a sympathetic expert surgeon looking to practice on his/her dime! ;) I’m not as enthused about my thighs but they are sooo much better than they were and are not painful anymore! I’m not the best at updating but I promise to try to be better! Thanks for looking!
