I’m a 39 year old female with secondary-progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) and mild hypertension. I always had issues with weight like most people looking for these types of surgery. I have bounced around from 150 lbs to my current 215 lbs.
I used to run and be in decent physical shape despite my weight. I go walking now whenever I can but I have huge fatigue issues.
I’m followed by Neurology every 3 months. I’m also followed by Pain management due to the pain caused by the MS. I’m compliant with all my medications given by the Neuro and pain doctor.
I have 4 children and I have huge fatigue issues due to this disease. I use a cane to get around now and used to be a a volunteer firefighter and pediatric RN.
I was wondering is it safe to have bypass or the sleeve procedure done with my type of MS?
