Surgeon Testimonial

Nauveed Iqbal
What can I say about Dr. Iqbal. He is the best. From the moment I went to his office for a consultation I knew he had to be my surgeon. He never rushed any of my questions and he's always explained things in terms us \"normal\" people understand. He's always there with a smile or a joke. His staff is incredible. They've never made me feel like I'm bothering them when I call. He does insist that this surgery relies on teamwork and he vocally insists on you keeping your end of the bargain. He never balked when I asked about risks or mortalities or anything. He's very honest about the whole process. When someone asks about my surgery, I pull out his business card and start rambling. He's the best!

Describe your behavioral and emotional battle with weight control before learning about bariatric surgery.
I wasn't a huge, constant eater. I was more of the skip breakfast, skip lunch and huge dinner type. I couldn't understand why I kept gaining. Food and I have always had a love/hate relationship.

    Cindi, You have been an inspiration to all of the Maysters. I think that by your posts that you've shared, you have one of the most hectic schedules of us all. I'm glad everything worked out for you. I know this is late, but it does not mean that I did not have you in my thoughts and prayers. Have a great recovery and let the melting begin. John

Such a Sad Day
posted 11/1/08 8:23 pm
Special people come in and out of our lives.  Some are there for a moment and some a lifetime.  Four years ago my great Uncle Clyde passed away.  His wife, my great Aunt Thelma, didn't drive.  After his death, I would take her once or twice a week for errands.  At the time she was about 94 years old.  We had a great time!  She's always been gorgeous.  You know, one of those very put together older ladies.  Hair and outfits always perfect.  She was the light of my Dad's life.  She and Uncle Clyde never had children so my Dad was their little man.  Funny, but my Dad is a very young 68 and he's just been terrific to her since Uncle Clyde passed.  They were one of those couples that were destined to be together and they loved each other so much.  All she wanted to do from the time Uncle Clyde passed was to join him.  Well, today, around 11:30 a.m., she got her wish.  She was messing with her hair this morning and the Hospice nurse thought she was rallying.  My Dad, however, knew it was time.  She was fixing up to see her beloved Clyde.  Mom met me, Mark and Britt at a restaurant for lunch.  We were just sitting in the booth when Mom got the call from Dad.  We excused ourselves and I came back with Mom.  Dad was okay by the time we got there and I got to see Aunt Thelma.  It was to be quite a while before she was officially pronounced so we could spend time with her.  It's such a sad day for all of us.
