[font=comic sans ms,cursive]Hello VST! [/font]

[font=comic sans ms,cursive]I am new to the site and very excited to come across a site such as this. I have been trying to make the huge decision to have the vertical sleeve. and I'm at the point[/font]
[font=comic sans ms, cursive]where I'm getting frustrated or I could be anxious as well, I'm just ready to get it over already. I've completed almost everything that my insurance requires except the doctors clearance. My insurance requires six months doctors visits documenting weight consult, blood work, and psych evaluations. The surgeon I am working with is Dr. Jawad Mohammed if anyone had any experiences please let me know. From the looks of things, it doesn't seem like I will be able to get the surgery before the end of the year bc my doctor is already scheduling the end of the month. In ready NOW!! ugh. I exercise every day, I'[/font][font=comic sans ms, cursive]m getting ready to complete the Stride for Breast Cancer Walk in Orlando, tomorrow. Next weekend Ill do the walk for Alzheimers and from there whatever comes my way. [/font]

Super happy to be a part of VST, please feel free to share any helpful tips
