Extra size me

Obesity. It’s all around us. And it is a problem. From my perspective I wonder at the health issues you face. I worry about the surgical issues should you need an operation. You are on a road to die early. But then, you want a miracle intervention that will save you. Nuh uh, it’s not so simple. I once had an anesthesia team refuse to put a young woman to sleep for surgery. Fine, write down a note and refuse. They chickened out and admitted her for pre-surgery care to qualify her for surgery. They warned me never to consider operating upon her again. All I know, I fear for you. I will not be doing any more operations. I can kick that can on down the road now.
