    I would love to see them. Do you want to send them to me by email? stacie.hengy@mavs.uta.edu. I could use a little inspiration. The fear and all the "what if's: are starting to set in .

    Hi Tammy! Thank you so much for the sweet merssage. How long ago did you have your surgery? How much have you lost? I am so excited, but a bit nervous! Were there any special things you wish you would have packed for the trip? What did you wear in the hospital? Do you wear a gown or do we bring clothes to wear? Weird questions. Sorry!

I have had a gastric sleeve.
Hey everyone. I am 38 years old and I had my gastric sleeve surgery on November 8/10 with Dr. Alvarez and that day has changed my life. I have a 17 year old and I work full time as an employment counsellor and part time respite care for a 16 year old developmentally delayed girl. I have been overweight all of my life and I am enjoying the benefits of being thin for the first time in my life. Thanks Dr Alvarez........
