  1. Thank you! I think I did friend you already. I find this site difficult to figure out and it has often not worked for me the way it's supposed to. I'm actually a nurse and have worked with pts who are having bariatric surgery, so I have a good amt of experience. And I just had my sleeve surgery a month ago, and have shed 18 #s! How about you? Where are you in this process?

    I hope you'll accept my friend request. You answered a question for another member that basically answered a question I recently posted. It made me feel better knowing what I'm going through is normal.

I don't understand how this site works

by Gaiatree on 07-06-2013 at 11:18 AM
I find this site very confusing and am ready to give up. Don't understand how it works or how to find out. I made a "group" and want to delete it and at one point there was a way to do it but now I don't know where that page went. The site keeps asking if I want to be 'friends' with someone, over and over again and I can't even get off the page unless I answer, over and over again, I always say yes yet no on is showing up on my friend list. I can't find entries I've made to others

Traveling back home right after surgery: plane, car, or bus for 4 hrs: what's the best way?

by Gaiatree on 07-04-2013 at 06:17 PM
I live in Santa Fe, will be having surgery in El Paso. It's a 3.25 to 4.25 hr non direct flight one way. Could take the bus or drive in just a bit more than that. Can't drive afterwards for at least a week. Am trying to figure out the best way to come home.....and it all depends on my comfort. Looking for suggestions/advice. How realistic is it to fly back home, or take the buy by myself? Or should I have someone fly down and drive me back home? Thanks!
