Hello my Bariatric Pals. I've registered with BariatricPals in April of this year and appears likely that your site is going to be my main support group throughout this ordeal. My Gastric Bypass isn't scheduled yet but I'm on track for a late July early August surgery date, you know the insurance waiting thing. By the way I really like your web site. Anyway I'm getting this done by Dr. Bruce Brient in Gainesville, Florida. It's a little over a two hour drive from my house but this is the closest place to get RNY done. The support meetings were going to be a pain to drive plus they just changed them to once a quarter and I think I'll want some more immediate feedback on any issues that may arise. I'm now going though the typical ups and downs about doing this but my route is still on course.
