Dr Bonanni is very nice and sincere. He went out and talked to my husband while he was waiting for me while I was having my surgery and let him know that everything went ok. He also came to see me everyday that I was in the hospital just to see how I was doing.

August 8,2005- Today I went for my one month post op visit and also to the nutritionist Teresa Runkle. I lost 30 pounds so far and they said i'm doing really good. I saw Dr. Beetle today. They said I can start the soft solid foods tomorrow. They said I can go back to work in two weeks unless I don't feel that I can. I'm getting all my vitamins and protein in everyday. The best thing I've found to puree is turkey chili it's delicious. I've been exercising almost every day. Today I walked two miles in 35 minutes. It was actually nice outside not so humid.
