yes! dr. varela...have you met him? he's way cool! i thought he was foreign just from the name but from what i can tell he's american. yes mine is at wash u and i work there as well. i was a little discouraged with the process they have in place but time flew by. i love angela britt, she's an angel. have you gone to any pre-op meetings? 1 is required but i've been to 2. i visit their Facebook page sometimes but its pretty dead on there...not a lot of activity, not sure why. when did you start the process? i started in march. sorry if i'm all over the place....multi-tasking lol

nice to meet you!

Prisytomboy I'm doing well thanks :) compared to a lot of people mine went extremely smooth, no vomiting or anything. Was off pain meds my 2nd day home. And 10 days out i have virtually no pain and am doing everything I would normally (except the eating of course). Not going to lie, I miss my old food desperately, but my will to get healthier still outweighs that (:

@mr_worm umm thanks..I think? lol

@cantw82bme I'm doing great :) 20.2 pounds down since my liquid preop so i'm feeling pretty good. They gave me a liquid loritab and I only used it once. And I actually didn't have a port..so I'm actually kind of clueless to what that is exactly..
