  • Hi all,

    Just wanted to post a quick update and say a Merry Christmas before I dissapear off to spend a week with my sister for christmas.

    I am doing brilliant I weigh now after my surgery 250 lbs a big drop down from 312 lbs 4 months ago and feeling great. Am a dress size 20 from a 30 pre op and have even dropped a shoe size! I have had no side effects and no complications my blood work is all perfect and vitamin levels spot on! My cycles have also gone from 46 days to 32 which I am so happy about and hope it bodes well for us getting back to ttc next year. We hope to get back to it May/June I cant wait.

    I am so pleased to see some BFPs on the board and hope this is the start of a good new year for us all. I also want to say thanks to you all for you support in the past while ttc and for the support you gave me through my surgery.

    Hope everyone has a great christmas!!

  • Ruth,
    I was so happy to see your post, I've been wondering how you've been doing. What a GREAT job!! You must be so proud of yourself, what a huge accomplishment (and I'm glad no side effects). I bet you're right, maybe this is what you needed for ttc. I hope 2005 is THE year for you!
