This article is one of the medical conditions that I have that led up to the decision to have bariatric surgery on July 24, 2015. This article was written on July 25, 2013, two years before my weight loss surgery.


I went to my liver doctor and I have two hernias. I also have lymph nodes all over my abdomen. I have cirrhosis of the liver but the non-alchoholic kind.

What is a hernia

A hernia is a mass or organ that pushes through the muscle wall at a point where there the muscle or tissue is weak. Once you have them they do not go away. They are usually found in the abdomen, but they can also appear in the; upper thigh, belly button, and groin areas. I got my hernias after I had my gall bladder out 30 years ago.

Lymph nodes and non alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver

Lymph nodes in the abdomen

Lymph nodes are little pea shape masses that filter waste from the body. They may become inflamed due to an infection. Because I have so many it may mean that my body has been fighting off something or other.

Non alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver

This liver condition can be fatal. Cirrhosis is the scaring of the liver around its edges and prevents the liver from working properly. I got this condition because I have fatty liver and I am insulin resistant. My body does not produce insulin as it should. That is why I take insulin.

Bariatric weight loss surgery

I have to go to a hematologis (blood specialist) t now, to get checked again and some other place for a consultation with the bariatric surgery department.

The stomach stapling is too dangerous for someone in my condition I could die on the operating table; but, the kind where they put a ring around the stomach will have less risk.So that is the one that I will get.

I am not happy about the news.

But it could have been worse.

please pray for me

Note: I had the bariatric surgery, the regular gastric by (weight loss surgery) on July 25, 2015.
