In addition to my other letter. I also am having trouble with a foot that is going numb. Neruopathy from lack of vitamin b-12 and I am having trouble with my eye sight. I have double vision. they are testing me for mysethina gravis and MS. I am suffering daily all I believe due to the gastric bypass surgery.. I maybe wrong but I was without any of these problems before the surgery.. My dr. once said for being 333lbs. you'd never know it looking at all of my health issues or lack of and lab work. my health status was great I only was fat...I'd do anything to not have done this surgery and have my healthy fat life back...I can't believe I did this surgery so I could do more funny, I suffer daily in pain, losing my teeth, losing feeling in my foot and most of all I have to close my left eye to see or I'll see double vision. that takes away your independence.. OH what I wouldn't do to be a healthy fat functioning independently daily....
