Congratulations on your upcoming surgery! I am post-op Laparoscopic RNY; my surgery was on 5/24/05. Anyway, I will be praying for you, and I know you will come through surgery with flying colors. Pretty soon, you will be a big ol’ loser!! I’m not going to tell you that the first few weeks after surgery will be a bed of roses because it was pretty bad for me. But today, I feel fine and the only thing that I regret is that I didn’t have surgery in 2004 when I first started researching it. So, if you find that you’re having a hard time coping right after surgery, please know that it DOES get better. Don’t ever hesitate to email me if there is anything I can do for you – even if you just need a pep talk! So here’s to you… may you have a successful surgery, improved health, energy galore, many “wow moments”, and fabulous before-and-after pics! God bless! Hugs, Tracy — future former fat chick

I just had my first surgical consultation today so I really don't have alot of information to form an opinion as to my likes/dislikes with regards to the surgeon or his staff. They were friendly and helpful. Dr. Udobi himself was kind and patient. The process for me is just beginning but thus far, other than the 3 week wait to get an appt, it hasn't been bad. I rec'd a large manual, which I read twice while waiting to be seen. I didn't realize when I went in that I would be wearing a hospital gown, so I hadn't shaved my legs in a few days. Dr. Udobi was unperturbed by that. He said "Americans worry too much about body hair..." lol. He asked if I had any questions and if my family was supportive of my having surgery. He said that would be important. He gave me a list of things to do before my next surgical consultation including a heart stress test, some blood work, meet with a psychologist and a dietician, etc. I asked Gayle to put in the Tricare request for surgery so that when everything was completed we could proceed if I was approved. She said she would. If possible, it is important I have the surgery before the holidays so my husband can take some leave to help me with our children, the household jobs, and my recovery. He is a RN/BSN, so having him close by will be of great benefit. All in all, my appt went as well as could possibly be expected. — DelanaBoBana
