How's it going? How are you feeling? I'm just over six months out now and I feel great. I had a really easy recovery and no complications. I've tolerated all the food that I've tried and I've kept within my program's dietary guidelines. I'm so happy I did this!

I can't wait to get this show on the road! Hate the waiting period. I'm ready now! Glad you had good experiences with your Dr.Williams!

I see a few people from Murfreesboro, are there support groups that I can join? I was sleeved in Alabama so I'm a bit behind the curve on what goes on in TN. Thanks!

Is that in Nashville? I'm still new to the Murfreesboro area, and I just wrecked my car so I'm not sure if I'll have one when I come back home cuz we're trying to fix it this weekend and next.

It's in Nashville just off 65. You would take 24 into Nashville to 65 South and get off at Armory Blvd. You could also look for groups at Centennial or Baptist hospitals but someone told me those were closed to outside pts. You could email the program coordinator at Vandy (look at their website - Vanderbilt Center for Surgical Weight Loss) to see if they have contacts at MTSU. Good luck. I am 45, mother of two, big/stressful career. I wish I had dome this in college. I am actually pre-op but getting close to a date. I can't imagine doing it without support. There is so much to learn! I feel like I "study" this site all the time to learn how to do this! GOOD LUCK!

I've got a great online support system but its not the same as having physical support. Plus with me being new to the area it would be nice to know someone. I've got my final semester of college starting on the 16th so this will be an interesting journey for sure :-)

I am in Rogersville TN, but Had my consultation with Dr. Boyce in Knoxville on 01/17/2014. Starting my 1200 cal 3 month medically supervised diet. I am contemplating the sleeve or the Band, Dr. Boyce recommends the sleeve for me though so really looking at it more and researching more on it. Any thoughts?

Were the foods and nutrients covered in the $1800 program fee or were they in addition to this cost?

Your friend will have to do either a 2 or 4 week pre-op diet, depending on BMI. They require that you use foods purchased from their office. Honestly, some of the food was so bad I couldn't eat it and substituted other stuff with a similar nutritional profile. The stuff they sold that I found good/tolerable: Protein chips, hot chocolate,

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
