It sounds simple enough: lose weight and get in shape to can get the treatment you need. The only problem is, if you are already in pain, feeling tired and sluggish, it can be hard to really make progress on your own when fighting to lose weight.
Most people become discouraged and give up, feeling as if they have no choice but to live with the pain and loss of functionality. Others are simply too embarrassed and lack the support they need to make healthy lifestyle changes.
Nothing is more frustrating than being told that the surgery you need to help reduce and relieve pain and restore function must wait until you are at a safer weight.
