...My only worry now is making sure I am well educated on food- did you go to a person to help you with this?

Thanks for your words! HAHA I think I can think of the person you are speaking of at RMAP that needs a little bit of help in doing their job- I actually spoke to that persons boss about them because I was so frustrated with them!!
Thanks for letting me know on the time off- my jobs are easy desk type of jobs and so I figured not too many days were needed :) I am really excited and just ready for this new life to start!!!
I have since spoken to Dr Simper about my options and we agree the RNY is what is best for me and I feel great about that coice :) A family member of mine had it 10 years ago or so by dr simper and has done VERY Well :)

Thank you again for the reply it really means allot for someone to tell me how their time was!
Since having my surgery, I've moved out of state and am now attending support groups in my new area. I'm amazed at how lacking they are (in my new are) with post-op care.
RMAP's "blue bible" is the gold standard (IHMO) on post-op diet and care. I only wish RMAP shared that info sooner. I would have preferred getting that info 2-3 weeks BEFORE surgery.
FYI, my company (located outside Utah) is still sendng people to RMAP for WLS surgery. The options in my current location are just not up to the level of care offered by RMAP. My company realizes that and is encouraging employees to get their surgery done in Utah rather than other locations. Four co-workers had surgery at RMAP and 3 others are scheduled for RMAP surgery in the next few weeks.
Believe me, you're very lucky to have RMAP doing your surgery. I actually have a relative that is a WLS surgeon at another clinic in Utah. But, after a lot of research, I felt RMAP had the best program and went with them. It was an excellent decision.
