Thanks for the info Lynnwood, that gives me a little better feeling. But, Denita like you said you would think losing the weight would improve our health. The other thing is that if it is so difficult sometimes to get even the specialist like a rheumatoligist to diagnose fibro or lupus how can a doctor that specializes in GBS know enough about
it to know how the two situations will interact, just a thought!
Denita, I had my surgery actually almost 8 years ago as well (time flies). I had high blood pressure and alot of pre-morbilities, my dad had diabetes, cancer, hypertension, strokes, etc and my mom passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). I weighed 275 lbs when I had the surgery and have been able to stay around 150-155. I too wouldn't change anything but it seems like I got to a healthy weight and than feel apart...lol!!! I feel the same way, couldn't do so many things that I wanted to because of my weight and now that it's relatively normal I can't do them anyway cause everything hurts. Denita, we sound so much alike, everything you talked about sounded like it was coming out of my mouth...!! I am soon to be 47 (New Year's Eve), and live in Virginia, I have 4 grown children, 2 boys, 2 girls (26, 23, 21 and 19) and 4 grandsons (4, 3, 2, and 1), yeah crazy when they all get together...lol!! I have a significant other who is great to me, even though we've only been together 14 months he's still wanting to stand by me through this. Both my parents have passed away so that makes things like this kinda hard, my mom was always my go to person, and as close as I am to my girls its hard for me to talk to them about the pain because it upsets them!
I hope everything goes well with the biopsy, keep me posted, nice talking to you!
