Didn't Want to Take "Easy" Way Out

I have been over weight my whole life. For the most part I have been active and healthy, considering my size. In July of 2011, I started having intense back/leg pain. After many doctors, an MRI and testing we discovered I have a ruptured disc, and multiple issues in my lower back. 

I did not want to have major back surgery - my neurosurgeon knew this. But given my size, fusion was my only surgical option. Then he asked me if I had ever considered gastric bypass or gastric sleeve. I was appalled. I had never considered bariatric surgery.
