Hi Kelly -
I'm gene (pre-op) - I play bass for a coverband here in LA (http://www.coverstoryla.com
) and am waiting patiently for my WLS to become a reality.. I've recieved my approval letter and now am waiting to hear from the surgeon... hope it's not too long.
When I first started looking into WLS it was because of the image thing... I've not had a ton of negative health issues from my weight, but I have kids and don't want to get a suprise later that would leave them without a dad!
Anyway, good luck to you - you're only a few weeks away!
C h e e r s,
