I have struggled with my weight since I was a young girl. It was a constant up and down. I had tried every supplement as a young adult. I did try the traditional route of nutrition and movement as well but I needed a different 'tool' to get me to my goal.
I was blessed to be approved by my insurance at the time for the Lapband surgery back in 2007 and was able to lose a significant amount of weight.
It worked until it didn't work.
The band is now causing pain in the area where the port is placed, so much that I am unable to wear 'real' pants or sit for long periods of time without an a sharp pain. The band itself is no longer holding saline and is virtually ineffective, causing more issues with eating and intake of liquids. Many folks who were 'banded' have had issues, needed replacement or removal of the band.
I am asking for donations for the deposit, which guarantees the price of surgery that was quoted. It will hold my place for up to one year while I look at financial options.
I am a hard working single parent. This is not something that I ask of lightly or would do without knowing what the larger picture holds for me.
It would allow me to take back my health, my well being.
Any donation at all would be greatly appreciated!
