About the Book

When Ed and his wife Amanda both decided to have sleeve gastrectomy bariatric surgery, they had no idea it would be such a pain in the ass. From the endless doctor visits, tests, bills, and paperwork to the most depressing waiting room in the universe, their journey was one fraught with irritation, sometimes absurdity, usually frustration, and, ultimately, success.

Ed's unique brand of brilliant wit, sarcastic humor, and relatable personal insight will both inform and entertain as he guides you through the harrowing process from beginning to end. Follow this average American couple's story though their decision making and all the way up to the procedure itself, including all the tests, appointments, and red tape that went with it. Ed's personal struggle, first as "the token fat guy," and then as both a patient and the loved one of a patient, his wife, affords a rare opportunity to see the process from many different perspectives.

Gain the kind of understanding about bariatric procedures that only comes from personal experience. Learn what self-help books and your doctor won't tell you and find out what Ed would've done differently if he could take it all back. Often funny and always informative, "Bariatric Surgery: The Best and Worst Decision I Ever Made" is a must-read if you or a loved one are thinking about or have had bariatric surgery, or if you've ever been frustrated by a doctor or hospital. And, c'mon... who hasn't?

About the Author:

Ed Zenisek is a writer, programmer, video gamer, and world champion couch potato. Senior web developer at New Mexico State University by day and aspiring humorist by night, Ed spends his free time with friends, family, and an old Ford truck. He has a bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems from DeVry University and has worked in the information technology field for over fifteen years, where his skills as a writer and presenter are mostly wasted. He met his wife, Amanda, in Alamogordo, and they now live in Las Cruces, New Mexico with a couple of dogs and a flock of chickens.

Ed, aka Fast Eddy, has spent most of his life overweight. Often calling himself 'The Token Fat Guy, ' he always felt his weight was just part of his persona. That began to change as health problems started to surface. Ed and his wife each underwent bariatric surgery in late 2017, and, by all accounts, it was a harrowing experience. Thankfully the surgeries were successful and Ed is slowly but steadily losing the weight he's carried his entire life.

Ed prides himself on his writing and speaking ability. In 2016, he gave a talk at NMSU's Launch competition, and his fiery presentation won first place with a $25,000 prize for his department. His casino tell-all book "EGDSecrets: Reel Truth, Right from the Source," written under the pseudonym Mark Vincent, has sold over 10,000 copies in print, electronic, and audiobook formats.
