Surgeon Testimonial

Stefanie Vaimakis MD, FACS, FASMBS
My first impression was very postitive. rnMy impression continues to change for the better. Her staff is wonderful and helpful. Her easy way of explaining things, no lecture no attitude just really wanting to see me succeed. I have nothing negative to say at all.rnFuture patients will have that very soothing feeling and lose a lot of fear about the procedure. Great emphasis on after care. Yes she tells you how to do your after care fully. She addressed all risks and if they don't phase you like me, you'll know your ready. I give my surgeon a rating of excellent. rnBoth are great.

    Monday is your day! Just remember you are on the journey of a lifetime. Try to enjoy every minute. It may sound weird now, but know that you are cared for and prayed for here, and all too soon this will be but a memory and you will be an inspiration to someone else. I am waiting for you on the losers' bench!

Starting to feel human again

posted 10/12/07 1:31 pm

Well I attempted to go to work last Monday, but company doc said I was pushing myself...... Um Ok who am I to disagree.

So I was home for another week. I go back this coming Monday (I'm dreading it, which means time to start job hunting). 
But I feel much better then I have in awhile. I still have random pains, but other than that all is OK so far (note the knocking of wood).

I'm feeling depressed for many reasons, so I decided to go to my Mecca- the mall. Well they were having a really good winter jacket sale, so I said OK I need a new one. Well I'm a 3x, or so I thought. Well I was a 26 then recently a 24 and they are getting very baggy on my. (poop in the pants looking). So I bought a pair of 22 pants and they were lose. But all pants fit different so I'm not getting to happy, but back to original point. The jacket I bought was a 1x, ever so slightly snug (well for my tastes I usally do the baggy clothes thing) but it zipped up with no hesitiation. A 1x!!! I almost cried in the store. Oh to reach my 1st goal of size 18...... I can almost see it over the horizon
