For as long as I can remember I have been heavy. It has been a life long dream to be smaller and now I have the chance. I started with my six months weight management program with my primary Dr.in August 06 That went by pretty quick. In the mean time I went to my first appt. with Dr. Lord, from the first time I met him I knew he was the right doctor for me. It was coming time for my last appt. with my primary Dr. This is when the time just slowed it seemed like it took forever, But the call came in mid March that my insurance approved the surgery. The Office called to set my appt., luckily there was someone who cancelled their surgery and my date was scheduled for March 26th. I was so excited!!! I had a date finally. Now I have had my surgery and I am recuperating from it. I am excited now to waiting to see the results.
