No real point to this post, Mag; just a few random thoughts.
I must say it's something I don't feel too comfortable about
, Mag, especially if you're only 23.
You may get very sick one day, and need to draw on that extra weight. And what if you want to have a baby? Will you be able to nourish a bub if you've had a gastric bypass and can't eat much?
THese are just general questions, Mag. I'm not an expert at all, but I do wonder about
your future quality of life if you do have such a surgery. You sound very healthy there: going to the gym, eating well, things like that. Is it possible you're just naturally heavier?
I think it's a good idea, though, to check with your doctor to see if something else is causing the weight retention.
I do feel for you. It's tough having body issues on top of the self-esteem issues that already come with a gut condition like Crohn's, not to mention fistulas and Pred use etc etc etc etc etc...
