    Oh ok Thank... Did you do your surgery at the Southwest General Hospital? Also, Were you told you HAD to buy their Bariatric Advantage Kit at the Pre-Op Class?! Asking because I have preop tomrrw and was told that I Have* to buy the Bariatric Advantage Kit *($300) at the class or they will cancel/Reschedule surgery.... 😕 (I really dont have the extra funds due to the holidays) Ive seen a few ppl that have been through them, but they said they weren't forced to buy it....just asking! Did they give you a Binder for stomach, or do I need to buy one before?! Thanks!
