Hi Everyone!

I'm Chris (woman) and I've been reading this very informative and caring forum for the last few months.  I guess I took a long time to post because I didn't really believe that I would come this far and would be eligible for the surgery.  I didn't want to jinx myself!  But, I had my surgical class in Windsor on April 5 and was told my file would be sent to Toronto Western hospital.  The nurse said I should get a call from them in about a month.  I hope so!  Once you've made the decision to have WLS, it's so hard to wait for it!

Hi and Welcome.  The waiting is so hard, but it gives us time to force the healthy changes into our lives and to wrap our heads around these changes and more. I hope the time flies by for you.
