Saw my doctor today. I don't need surgery on my hernia. Just some rest and then I can get back to normal. Also, he felt I may never need an operation on it since it is a navel hernia and not one that is lower on the body. Very exciting!
While I was at the doctors I discussed my difficulty losing weight. He strongly suggested that I get a gastric by-pass. He said that he feels my hormones are totally messed up and that is why my weight won't come off no matter how low I drop my calories. And, he said that gastric by-pass seems to correct that for people almost immediately. During the surgery they take out that first part of the intestines. The first section of your intestines create both diabetes and Celiac disease. It cures many people of their diabetes within hours of the operation. Wonder if it would cure my Celiac disease? At any rate, my husband is 100% against it. I would feel like I didn't work hard enough if I got the gastric by-pass. I know that it is not an easy way out. I am definitely not saying that people who have gotten the operation have an easy time of it. I just feel I should keep trying until I find the answer on my own.
If you have any opinions on gastric by-pass I would LOVE to hear them. Thanks!
