My name is Vanessa.  I have had problems FOREVER!  No lie!  Im 27years old and began to think that it is best to do something now that later when it is to late.  Other than being over wieght I am very healthy.  I want to remain healthy and did not want to develop an issues that come from being my size.  I had surgery yesterday morning with Dr. Nirmul. Sorry if I miss spelled his name. :)  Anyway I don't have much to say yet as it has only been on day.  I am not in extreme pain.  I have no gas which is what I was really worried about.  I can drink and eat without it hurting.  So far it has been all good. :)  I can not wait to start seeing some results.  I guess as the days go by and things start to change I will up load photos and and add more to my story.
