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!

Welcome to the forum
This is a great place for support, encouragement and friendships(and that odd kick in the butt when we need it)
Waiting is the worst but as others have said it is so worth it. Keep posting, be sure and ask questions. We will do our best to answer them
