Next week is my day

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Going for bypass next week after working on this for 2 years. It has been a long, crazy trip. From learning about every flaw in my body to my 1st hospital deciding to fire their all star surgeon for bucking management and having to start over at a new hospital, it has been a bit crazy.

Of course, I keep getting flashes of fear as I have factor V leiden, so I'm 4 to 8 times more likely to have a DVT 

I am pretty excited to get it done, and Im super happy with my new doctor

Welcome to Thinner Times and congratulations on your up and coming RNY.

I don't know anything about the factor V Leiden (I'll have to do some reading on the subject) but I'm sure that your team will be watching you closely.

It's an Inherited thrombophilia that makes me 4X more likely to develop DVT and PE.

That is a scary prospect but kudos to you for seeking WLS to help you achieve a healthy weight.
