I was all set for a fall RNY, but where I had been completely comfortable with my decision before, recently I wasn't so sure. It got to the point that I dreamed two nights in a row that I was begging my doctor to keep my pyloric valve functional. lol On the third night, I just couldn't sleep. I jumped out of bed, too to the web and read for a couple of hours. I ended up emailing my doctor to see what it would take for me to change from RNY to a DS. That was in the wee hours Thursday morning. Now I am just waiting... bah!
I haven't felt this good about a decision since I decided to pursue WLS. I am just hoping there aren't some weird Swedish roadblocks that will keep me from getting it. I already know my follow up responsibility is going to fall to me. There is a great surgeon at my hospital, but their information for follow up care isn't as extensive as it should be. I am going to have to become a walking DS encyclopedia, but I think it will be worth it in the long run.
