    Default Hi y'all

    Not at all sure what to say here. After YEARS of waiting, hoping, & being disappointed, I'm finally able to see surgery clearly in the near future. I don't have a date yet - finishing up a sleep study and then I'll go on the schedule. My clinic is BVSA - Blue Valley Surgical Associates in the Kansas City area. I'm anxious and worried....

    Welcome!

    It’s perfectly normal to feel anxious and worried. Read everything you can here and watch Ask Dr A on YouTube. You’ll be an expert!

    This is one of the best decisions I ever made for myself. My only regret is that I waited.

    You’ve come to the best site for information, encouragement and support. We’re here to share our experiences and help where we can. And we have lots of fun!

    Welcome and congratulations on making the decision to have your surgery. It is a life changing experience and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made, wish I had done it sooner!

    It's perfectly normal to be a little nervous. Just take this time to read up and study as much as you can about the procedure and what to expect. Knowledge is power for sure in this situation. Don't be afraid to ask questions, there are veterans (and newbies) who are more than willing to help and share their experiences.

    Don't worry, YAY for you!
