Getting ready for surgery

I struggle with major health related problems concerning my diabetes, arthritis, hypertension and depression. I am overweight and obese, so my weight is always difficult to maintain and just keeps going up. I decided bariatric surgery because my diabetes is getting out of control and I am so depressed with my life and the way I look that I do not want to leave the house. My weight is taking over my body which is making my everyday life dysfunctional. When I first went to the St Lukes weight center I did not know what to expect but the staff and doctors are wonderful and very understanding. Everyone stuck by my side, and they communicated with respect to me. I am looking forward to a successful surgery and look forward to working with everyone and getting control of my life back.
