I will be taking some time off to recover from my upcoming surgery. It is a very high risk combined surgery. I have co morbidity. Two proececures done togther.
It requires two surgeons. One gyno surgeon and a plastic surgeon. I will be having all the excess loose skin from weightloss removed. The I had been on a medicine for over ten years that had caused my weight gain. I became very close to five hundred pounds. After the drug left my system I had rapid weightloss, thus the loose skin. I never did go on a diet . I just began to bellydance and increased my physical activity. Starting eight years ago it came off of me. I didn't go on a diet. I have lost now cose to three hundred pounds. Went from my biggest dress size of 32 to a size 14-16. I do not do these surgeries for cosmetic reasons. My pannis-belly and other loose skin have hung ff my lower spine now for quite some time. Causing debilitating range of movement. Compressing my spine and hurting my back and shoulders etc.... The other surgery I need to have is a compleat hysterectomy.My pelvic diseas endometrioses had grown out of control since first diagnosed with it in 1993. It has adhered to everything in my abdomen. Plus I have two ovaries the size of coconuts and bigger than my uteris. I have been in great pain.
So Friday morning I to go into a very long and complicated combined surgery. The procedure just for my skin removal could take up to ten hours. The gyno surgery will be at least two. I will under for over ten hour. This wil be longest I will have EVER been under anasthesia and and under for a procedure. When I wake up I wil not have the same body.
I am very nervous but living the way I have with all the chronic debilitating pain, is unacceptable. IF and when I return from recovery I will continue my shutter bugger as well as be doing more modeling. It will be a long recovery, but in the long run I will feel better and be able to return to all my favourite athletic activities as well as persuing a trade.
So I will see you all when I get back. If I don't return then keep rockin on with your own art and don't forget me.
P.S. To Miss Honeymodel-Thank you For all the inspiration after all these years.
