Don't know what to do!
Monday, July 30, 2012
I have a problem and I'm not sure what to do. For the last two years I have been on medication for leg edema. My left leg is larger than my right leg. This happened late summer in 2010. I want to be off the medication, but it won't stay away. It seems to be on the mend and then there it is again. I try to avoid salt as much as possible. I believe it will go away if I lose more weight. I have already had a consultation with a doctor for a lap-band. I want to get the Roux en-Y, but it's not possible because of all the scarring from previous hernia surgeries. The last few weeks I have been doing really well on WW and I have started moving around more. This could very easily be temporary and I desperately want this weight gone. I don't know if I should go through with the surgery or not. I have had several family members go through it and they are doing well. What to do, what to do? I appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!
