  1. Hi Lynda! I have actually changed surgeons and surgery date. But I do have a friend that went to Dr. Almanza a year ago and had a fabulous experience and is doing great! I am now having surgery on Dec 16th with Dr. Ponce de Leon. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time.

    Since I was so big, they had me start a diet 3 weeks ago, and I'm down 29 lbs so far. Surgery is in 2 weeks, and I just started the official pre-op diet today, again, a little early because of my BMI.

    My husband is going with me. I'm too chicken to go alone. My brother had the surgery 2 years ago, and I have seen how well he is doing and how great he feels. He was not nearly as big as me, but he went from 330 lbs to the weight he is now of 185 lbs. He said it was the best thing he has ever done. I finally decided to have the surgery in July. I had to wait so long until the Christmas holiday when I could get so much time off work.

    Are you going alone? How has your journey been so far? The emotions for me have been up and down as surgery gets closer. Sorry we are no longer surgery day buddies, but I would love to keep in touch and support each other as we go through this journey!
  2. Hi Tiffany!! My surgery is the same day/place as you!! Are you excited? Are you going alone? What made you decide to do this?
