It will go fast for you I am sure. Depending on your hospital for surgery, as it plays into how fast you go. I went through HRRH, I was referred Jan 25/13 and had surgery June 2/13. Of course you have to factor in how sick you are ie: co-morbidity. I had the 3 big ones diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension, my weight wasent extreme 225, and Im 5'4" . Almost to goal, I have 5 lbs more to go. All the best on your path, you will not regret it

I am 5'10" and I weigh 349 pounds. I've had a long history of high cholesterol and hypertension. My blood sugar is 6.2. I am in the early stages of liver disease caused by a fatty liver. I am hoping with this health history I will qualify for the surgery. I suspect I will have my surgery in Toronto.

I live in Peterborough so I am an hour to half away from Toronto. I suspect my surgery site will either be Humber River or Toronto Western.
