I got your message today Betsey, so sorry I didnt see it sooner. Broke the screen on my phone and never saw it.
That being said , yes, I am super busy. I have a very high caseload this year and am super overwhelmed. Something has got to give,lol.
Gastric Bypass Surgery went just fine. I am doing good, I think. I am down 85 pounds since last November and feeling decent. I am lucky as not to have ,anyissues, after the first few weeks I was back to myself. I am doing 1/4 to 1 mile on the treadmill every day. Legs are not cooperating pain wise, but just getting rid of the last 45 pounds has really helped with my balance. Its been almost 3 months since I fell last. I have about another 40 pounds to go till I reach my goal weight.
I am still in touch with the Boston Scientific rep and as soon as I am cleared from my surgeon I will be getting the SCS which I am very excited about. I also am getting scheduled to see an excersie physiologist to make a plan that will irritate my back the least.
Al in all its progress, thats all I can ask for.
Thanks for checking in one me ladies, I really appreciate it!
