Hey cheryl, I know that you will do just fine, and I'm dusting off a spot on the "Loser's Bench" for you. Just remember sip, sip,sip, walk, walk walk.

Well I see that you and I are due to have surgery on the same day--October 8th ! I am having my surgery at USC University Hospital in Los Angeles and it will be a revision surgery for me as I had a previous WLS done in 1980 and it was a much older procedure (not done anymore) that was not done by a Bariatric Surgeon (as they really did not have them at that time) and I had to have it undone in 1988 because of problems due to the way the surgeon did the operation and the procedure causing serios side effects.I had lost weight from 410 lbs. down to 180lbs., but through the years and many years of steriod use for severe arthritis I have gained and gaineduntil I now am 380 with a BMI of 61.Due to multiple previous surgeries, I will have to have an open procedure-probably a distal RNY or possiblt a Duodenal Switch.I am 61 but have passed all the tests-including the Cardiac Stress and Pulmonary Function Studies.Hope all is a GO for your surgery and will check back with you to see how you are doing.Glad to be in this with another "mature" lady such as myself.
