Do these exist, or do people just go to PDX?  I'm new to the area (ish) and had VSG in 2012, so I wouldn't be affiliated with a surgeon or hospital here but would like to find a support group.

Thanks for any help!

I am so flipping bored. - I'm about 2 weeks post LBL and BL/aug.  Getting super bored of not feeling like myself, really.  And by that I really mean of not being able to work out or do the things that need ...

Had plastics last week. - At home, getting bored wondering if this will all turn out ok.  It's hard to tell right now because of the swelling.  I hope I didn't go from an hourglass shape to a weird diamond....

For Kairk - Here are some pictures I took at my first plastics consult, just playing around with the implants.  These were too wide for my frame, but they made for an interesting picture!

3 HOURS of Yoga--Happy 2014! - I posted a while ago that I'd signed up for a 3-hour yoga class to "flow" into the new year at a local yoga studio.  I thought perhaps I'd lost my mind, but I did it anyhow.  So...
