I had this surgery August 16th, 2016.
I am now figuring out my new life
without a stomach. I wouldn’t say it’s
been easy, but it’s definitely worth it to
not have those large odds against me.
I look forward to growing old with my
husband and being able to be there for
my now 4-year-old daughter. I look
forward to watching her grow, learn,
and become an amazing young lady
and, of course, being there for all of
those milestones in life makes losing my
stomach worth it.
