October 1st here. Just got approved for LOA from work'! So excited and a little scared. I'm 48 with 3 grown kids and 2 grandsons , I'm a nurse of 18 years experience. Most worried about not losing all the excess weight and acid reflux for eternity. I'm an hour south of Chicago.

Best wishes for all of us!!

Hi Oct Sleevers! I don't have a definitive date because they won't commit until insurance approves. My last Nut visit in 9/6 and will be submitted to insurance then. The turn around is less than a week and surgery about 3 weeks later. Finger

G'day! I went to see my surgeon yesterday and we booked a tentative date. 24 October 2012. I am from Canberra, Australia and my surgeon is in Sydney (Dr John Jorgensen). I have a friend of mine who is also considering doing the journey with me... I am excited and nervous.
